Kerr's Three-Pointer Leads Devils to Upset Win Over Division I Dragons

By auren Whetzel

University of the Sciences’ nationally-recognized hoops star Garret Kerr DPT’17 scored 27 points – including the game winning, fadeaway three-pointer in final seconds – during the Devils 54-52 win against Drexel University on Thursday, Dec. 4.
 
 "I thought we had a really good effort matching their physicality," Kerr told reporters after the game. "This was a good win."
 
The win was the first by an NCAA Division II school against a Division I program on the D-I school's home floor in a regular season game this season.  It is, however, the second win by a Division II school over a Division I opponent this season (Alaska-Anchorage defeated Rice at the Great Alaska Shootout).
 
Kerr, a 6’4″ forward, also ended the game with 10 rebounds – a performance which should come to no surprise to anyone who has paid attention to the Philadelphia college basketball scene over the past few years. Kerr is one of the top Division II players in the country; averaging 24.6 points and 12.9 rebounds per game this season.
