Colonials to Play in Annual Kenner League at Georgetown's McDonough Arena
Get to Know 2014-15 GW Men's Basketball Freshman Darian 'Jelly' Bryant
Bryant repeated on the All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) Second Team as a senior in 2013-14 after averaging 10.1 points for his St. John's College High School team that won the WCAC regular season title, peaked at No. 11 in USA Today's Super 25 rankings, and finished the season 28-6 overall. Bryant was one of four Cadets players to be recognized on the Washington Post's 2013-14 Winter All-Met team, earning honorable mention accolades. He will join GW returners Joe McDonald, Kethan Savage and Nick Griffin as Colonials to earn All-Met accolades during their local scholastic careers, and is the sixth All-Met selection to sign with GW during Coach Mike Lonergan's three-year tenure.
Bryant earned Second Team All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) honors as a junior in 2012-13, averaging 11.2 points on 47 percent shooting as he helped the Cadets reach the WCAC Championship game. It was Bryant's half-court, buzzer-beating game winner that helped St. John's edge DeMatha Catholic, 57-55, in the WCAC quarterfinals en route to the title game. The 6-foot-4 guard is not only noted for his shooting, but also his size, strength and ability to guard multiple positions.
