Boys Basketball – Brendan Barry Commits to Dartmouth
Rumson-Fair Haven senior Brendan Barry Tuesday night announced on Twitter he will continue his basketball career at Dartmouth College.
Barry chose Dartmouth over Brown University and Colgate University, which were the other two schools on his final list.
In four varsity seasons at Rumson-Fair Haven, Barry set a new school record for career scoring with 1,812 career points. He was the 2014-15 Shore Sports Network Player of the Year and a First-Team All-Shore selection in each of the past two seasons. He also set a school record by scoring 50 points in a single game, which was the first time a Shore Conference player scored 50 points in a game since 2002.
This past year, he averaged 25.7 points, 5.1 assists and 2.7 steals per game after leading the Bulldogs to their first ever Shore Conference Tournament championship one year earlier.
Dartmouth just named David McLaughlin its new head coach on Monday and both he and Barry will be among the group that looks to turn around the fortunes of an Ivy League program that went 55-116 in six year under predecessor Paul Cormier. McLaughlin was the associate head coach at Northeastern prior to his hire and the head coach at Division II Stonehill College prior to that.
