WMBD/WYZZ-TV - PEORIA, Ill. - Bradley freshmen swingmen Jordan Swopshire and Stefan Zecevic both intend to transfer following the 2014 Spring semester and have been granted their releases, Braves head coach Geno Ford announced Wednesday.
“Jordan and Stefan both are quality young men and we have enjoyed having them as a part of the Bradley Basketball family,” said Ford. “They both are seeking opportunities for increased playing time and we wish them the best.”
A 6-foot-6 wing, Swopshire appeared in 26 of Bradley’s 32 games in 2013-14, averaging 1.3 points and 0.5 rebounds per game. He made 8-of-20 (.400) 3-point field goal attempts, including 4-of-5 during his season-high 12-point scoring effort Dec. 21 versus Pacific. Also a 6-foot-6 wing, Zecevic appeared in 22 games in 2013-14, averaging 0.5 points and 0.6 rebounds per game. He scored his season-best four points in the season-opener Nov. 8 versus Jacksonville State, then matched the total two days later against Alabama State.
Combined with the graduation of seniors Mason Alwan, Chris Blake, Walt Lemon Jr., Tyshon Pickett and Jordan Prosser, Bradley will return six lettermen from the 2013-14 squad. The Braves signed two recruits during November’s early-signing period - junior college point guard Tramique Sutherland and high school forward Donte Thomas – and the Braves have four scholarships available for the 2014-15 campaign.
