Temple announced Friday that Brendan Barry has signed a financial aid agreement to attend the university after three seasons at Dartmouth.
The Big Green had to go without Barry’s standout three-point shooting and ball distribution last season , which he missed due to injury. Barry had decided earlier this year to return to the Big Green rather than play elsewhere as a graduate transfer.
A native of Fair Haven, N.J., Barry averaged 9.8 points and three assists per game in his three seasons at Dartmouth.
Barry had been a major focal point of Dartmouth’s offense in his final two seasons in Hanover, ranking second on the team and 11th in the Ivy League for the 2018-19 season at 13.2 points per game. He also was a pivotal ball distributor for the Big Green, boasting the conference’s highest assist-to-turnover ratio for the second straight season as a junior.
“We are excited to welcome Brendan to the Temple family,” Temple coach Aaron McKie, who is entering his second season helming the Owls after taking over for Fran Dunphy, said in a statement. “He is a veteran player who has terrific perimeter range that will help stretch opposing teams’ defenses. He is also a fine young man who will easily fit into our team culture.”
