Bernard landed in good place


Richmond Times-Dispatch - - SPORTS - — John O’Con­nor

Mal­colm Bernard, who com­mit­ted to Richmond’s bas­ket­ball pro­gram last spring and in­tended to spend a sea­son as a Spi­der af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Florida A&M, landed in a good place.

Bernard, a 6-foot-6 wing, has started ev­ery game for No. 15 Xavier (13-3) and is av­er­ag­ing 6 points, four re­bounds and 1.7 as­sists. Bernard, a res­i­dent of Mi­ami, failed to gain ad­mis­sion to UR be­cause of aca­demic rea­sons, he said in July.

Bernard said he con­sid­ered op­por­tu­ni­ties to join other A-10 pro­grams that in­vited him, but he didn’t want to face UR be­cause he had so much re­spect for coach Chris Mooney and the Spi­ders he got to know.
