WWU's Bragg and Woodworth join Bellingham Slam


The team that will take the court for the Bellingham Slam for the first time under new head coach Tyler Amaya continues to take shape with the addition of two standout players from Western Washington, the team announced today.

Austin Bragg and Richard Woodworth, who both finished their senior seasons with the Vikings last month, will be joining the Slam for the 2014 International Basketball League season.

Bragg, a 6-foot-9 forward, recently wrapped up a stellar year for WWU, leading the team in both scoring and rebounding with averages of 17.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.

Woodworth, a 6-foot-3 guard from Bellevue's Newport High School, finished an excellent four-year playing career with the Vikings ranked 15th on the school's career scoring list with 1,262 points.

As a sophomore, Woodworth was a member of the Vikings' NCAA Division II national championship-winning team in 2012.
