HBU basketball’s point guard Braxton Bonds is leading the team in assists and averaging almost 10 points per game.
If the name sounds familiar it’s because Braxton has a famous uncle, Major League Baseball’s current all-time home run leader, Barry Bonds.
While baseball is a way of life for the Bonds family, Braxton, a sophomore transfer, notes that he was always a fan of basketball. “My family was pretty much baseball all the way, but I was like, I can’t do this, this sport’s too boring for me.”
In February, Bonds and Atif Russell scored 18 points each, leading to HBU winning its fourth straight and beating Sam Houston State.
