Bradshaw, the Vols' starting power forward the past two seasons, has written a book entitled "Vertical Leap." It will be available at $19.95 per copy throughout the state on May 29. Tennessee Valley Publishing calls it "an insider's look at the rise of Tennessee basketball" and "a must-read for collegiate basketball fans."
It seems Bradshaw kept a journal during the 2006-07 season, making detailed notes on UT's early morning workouts, road trips, his assorted injuries and some inside information his publisher refers to as "locker-room banter."
"Vertical Leap," which features a foreword by UT head man Bruce Pearl, breaks down the 2006-07 season into three groupings: Preseason Preparation, Season Play and Post Season Play.
The book's 232 pages include 32 pages of full-color photographs. Autographed copies will be available online at www.tvp1.com.
