Brad Soderberg ’84, Virginia Cavaliers play in NCAA tournament Saturday

Leading up to the NCAA men’s basketball tournament this week, the article “Dairyland Dance: 20 Players and coaches from Wisconsin in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament” ran in the Wisconsin State Journal/Madison.com and other media outlets in the state. The list includes Brad Soderberg ’84, assistant coach for the University of Virginia Cavaliers.

He started his college playing career at Ripon College before transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and playing under Dick Bennett ’65. “Soderberg also joined former NBA star and coach Terry Porter to play in the 1984 NAIA national championship game and coached under Bennett at UW-Madison from 1995-2001,” the article states.

Fourth-seeded Virginia opens the tournament Saturday against No. 13 Ohio in the West region.
