Former Saint Peter’s (N.J.) junior guard Doug Edert is transferring to Bryant Men’s basketball program, per College Basketball Jon Rothstein’s Tweet today.
Additionally, Edert had offers from Fairleigh Dickinson, Wagner and New Hampshire.
Edert, an ex-Bergen Catholic High School (N.J.) standout, averaged 9.5 points (314 total) and 2.5 rebounds per game in 33 contests.
Edert played a vital role during the men’s basketball team’s historic run in the month of March, from winning the MAAC Championship to the Peacocks’ memorable run to the Elite 8.
The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) named the Nutley, N.J., native as the MAAC Championship game MVP after he drained 20 points off the bench to guide the squad to victory.
Next, he dropped another 20 points against No 2. Kentucky in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Edert then scored 13 points against Murray State in the Round of 32, helping the Peacocks upend the Racers and advanced Saint Peter’s to the Sweet 16.
The Peacocks posted a 22-12 record and went 14-6 MAAC action in the 2021-22 campaign.
Braynt put up a 22-10 mark and went 15-2 in Northeast Conference (NEC) action this past season.
