Grassi and Bradbury Both Reach 1,000 Points in Historic Season

Two BSU Women’s Basketball stars, Kylie Grassi and Sydney Bradbury, recently reached the milestone of 1,000 points for their careers this season. Grassi and Bradbury are the 20th and 21st players in BSU Women’s Basketball history to reach the achievement. Grassi reached the milestone on January 10 against MCLA in a resounding 71-33 victory. In an interview with The Comment, Grassi said that she felt that “all my hard work has paid off” since starting out the sport at age four and that this achievement felt “the most special.” Bradbury called it her “personal greatest achievement.”

Grassi became just the second Bears Women’s Basketball player to attain 500+ total points in a season, scoring 535 points. She was also 15 points away from tying the record for most points in a season in BSU program history.

Bradbury reached the mark exactly a month later on February 10th against Fitchburg State. The day Bradbury achieved the feat was also on her Senior Day. Bradbury reached the accomplishment in her 95th game in which she was honored alongside Sophia Gaucher and Caroline Tripp prior to tipoff at the Adrian Tinsley Center.

Bradbury, alongside her teammate Grassi, led the Bears to the MASCAC Championship game against Framingham State. The Bears lost the game to the Rams, who finished on a 24-2 season. Bradbury is also second in all-time made three-pointers, with 205 in her career. She was five away from tying with Jenna Williamson, who had 210 from 2011-14.

Bradbury scored a total of 1,076 points, which counts for 13th most all-time. Grassi ended the season with 1,202 points, tying for fifth with Megan Boutilette (2010-15). Entering her senior season in 2024-25, she will be 134 points away from becoming the highest-scoring player in BSU history. They are also the first pair to accomplish this milestone in the same season since 2013-14 when Elisa Homich and Williamson both reached the milestone.

For Coach Bridgett Casey, whom Grassi attributes to learning so much, the two are the 13th and 14th players that have reached the achievement under her leadership. Coach Casey says that they’re both “excellent students in the classroom” and that she has considered coaching both “an honor.” Coach Casey also stated, “Both of them also have put a great amount of time into improving their game in the off season and that has certainly showed for each of them. They are both well respected members of the team, both in the locker room and on the court.”
