Bolden Brace Honored as 6th Man of Year in Colonial Athletic Association

Santa Barbara High alum Bolden Brace was named the Sixth Man of the Year in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Bolden Brace is named Sixth Man of the Year in the CAA.

After leading his program to a 14-4 conference record, Northeastern's Bill Coen was named CAA Coach of the Year for the first time in his career.
Shawn Occeus, who led the CAA in steals for the entire conference season was named the Defensive Player of the Year. Vasa Pusica finished as the runner up for Player of the Year while earning All-CAA First Team honors and Tomas Murphy was selected to the CAA All-Rookie Team.
Brace, who started the first six games of the season for the Huskies, moved into a reserve role during the second half of the non-conference slate, where he excelled en route to being named the first-ever CAA Sixth Man of the Year. The sophomore, who usually checks into the game alongside Murphy and Begley, brings another level of intensity to the game the second he steps foot on the court.
He finished the regular season averaging 8.0 points per game, and a team-leading 4.9 rpg, while shooting .460 from the field and .402 from behind the arc. In conference play, Brace's numbers only went up. He finished CAA action with 8.7 ppg, 5.5 rpg, while dishing out 42 of his 64 total assists, and making 12 of his 20 steals and seven of his 12 total blocks. He also shot .485 from the field and .429 from deep while tallying two double-doubles on the year, both during CAA play.
Brace led Santa Barbara to a CIF-SS basketball title during his senior year of 2015-16.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
