Jones and Braswell lead Triple Threat

VUSports had the opportunity to watch Triple Threat play three games on Saturday and Sunday.

Chris Braswell 6'8", Forward, DeMatha MD, Class of 2008

In Saturday's 67-53 win over Cleveland Basketball Club, Braswell scored 12 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the floor 0-of-1 shooting from the free-throw line. He also contributed five rebounds and a blocked shot to the cause as Triple Threat blew things open in the second half to earn the win. He didn't play more than half the game.
