ESPN basketball analyst and former NBA player Adrian Branch visited the Bucknell University campus on April 7 to talk to a group of coaches and athletes about his basketball career in high school, college, and the professional leagues. Branch told the audience about a number of his experiences such as several key games that he played in, but also how he came to find his faith after a series of events in his life. This trip of his was sponsored by a few different religious groups like Bison 4 Christ, Christ Wesleyan Church and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the Office of Chaplains and Religious Life. It was an engaging and informative event that gave the attendees a lot of insight and understanding of what it is like to live a sports-filled life.
Branch was a shooting guard for the University of Maryland from 1981-1985 and was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the 1985 NBA draft. He played with a few American professional teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Portland Trail Blazers before going overseas to play for other franchises in countries like Spain, Australia, France, and Israel. In addition to that, he also worked with many Christian sports groups like Young Life and Youth with a Mission before becoming a sports analyst in 2004. In 2007 he took his talents to ESPN where he is still employed as a college basketball analyst.
The Washington D.C. native gave a great speech at Bucknell University earlier this month that is sure to linger with those who got to hear it and enjoy the stories that he shared with them.
