Bradley, Holmes Earn All-Conference Honors
Bradley Voted First-Team All-Conference, Holmes Voted All-Freshman
IRVING — The Mean Green women’s basketball team earned two postseason all-conference honors this season.
Bradley is just the third North Texas women’s basketball player to earn a first-team all-conference honor in the last 15 years and is the first since Amber Jackson in 2009.
Bradley and Holmes have guided the Mean Green to their first winning season in 12 years and given fans plenty of exciting moments.
Bradley leads the team in scoring, averaging 18.8 points per game and also leads the team in rebounding, averaging 5.6 rebounds per game. Her 527 points scored this season are the fourth-most in a single season in program history and the most since Mitchell scored 562 in the 2001-02 season. She’s made 148 free throws, a school-record, and her 51 3-pointers are the ninth most in a single season.
In conference play, Bradley has led C-USA in 3-point field goal percentage, shooting over 50 percent for a majority of the season.
Bradley, a two-time C-USA Player of the Week winner this year, set a school and conference record on Feb. 8, by making nine consecutive 3-pointers at FIU in a 46-point win, the largest road victory in school history. She finished that game with a career-high 32 points, a school-record nine made 3-pointers and also scored her 1,000th career point in the process.
Bradley single-handily won the team’s game at Eastern Illinois in the non-conference schedule. Bradley played all 45 minutes of the overtime game and made the game-tying layup to send the game into overtime and then hit the game-winning jumper at the buzzer to win the game.
At Indiana, Bradley recorded her third career double-double and in her postgame interview, Hoosiers’ head coach Teri Moren praised Bradley and called her “a special player."
Bradley has led the Mean Green in scoring 23 times this year, but right on her tail has been the freshman Holmes who is averaging 8.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game and is one of the best defenders in the conference.
Holmes burst on to the scene with a record-setting performance. Holmes scored 20 points and had 10 rebounds in the season-opener. The 20 points are the most scored by a Mean Green true freshman in their collegiate debut.
It was the first of her so far two double-doubles this year. She later set a season-high with a 13-rebound performance in her second double-double game.
Holmes, knocked down what would eventually be the game-winning 3-pointer in the final seconds against Charlotte on Jan. 13.
The three-time C-USA Freshman of the Week winner is an elite athlete who has been given the duties of some of the toughest defensive assignments. She leads the team in steals and in hustle stats, such as drawn charges. She’s a relentless rebounder who has springs in her feet.
Holmes led a double-digit comeback win at Florida Atlantic but scoring 18 points on four made 3-pointers and grabbing nine rebounds.
She is the sixth North Texas freshman to be named to a conference all-freshman team and the first since UNT moved to C-USA. Bradley is 20th different North Texas women’s basketball player to earn postseason all-conference honors. She’s just the fifth to be named to an all-conference first-team. It is the first time since 2013 that North Texas has had two players earn all-conference honors in the same season.
