Kenrich Williams and Vladimir Brodziansky are two names that won’t be forgotten by TCU men’s basketball fans anytime soon.
The guard and forward both played significant roles in the Horned Frogs NIT Title run in 2017 before helping lead TCU back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1998 this March as seniors.
With their playing days in Fort Worth, Texas now behind them, Williams and Brodziansky have their sights set on professional basketball. And if they intend to impress NBA scouts one last time, they’ll have the chance to do so this week.
Both Horned Frogs are set to play in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in Portsmouth, Va. — an annual tournament that showcases 64 of the nation’s top NBA prospects. As reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Will Wilkerson, representatives from all 30 NBA franchises will be on hand to watch the action.
Williams was the Horned Frogs’ leader in rebounds last season, averaging 9.3 rebounds per game, and was second in scoring at 13.2 points per game, only trailing Brodziansky. The 6-foot-11 native of Slovakia led TCU with an average of 15 points per game during the 2017-18 season. Both players broke the 1,000-point mark in their careers while at TCU.
The 2018 NBA Draft will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on June 21. Until then, Williams and Brodziansky can only hope that their names are remembered by NBA scouts when the two hit the hardwood in Virginia this week.
