EHARKXEVLPLQGTR.20150909164831

Welcome back to our old friends for another start to the Duke Basketball Season !!!  

Tonight, we begin our annual Player’s Profile marathon, meaning that each day from today, until we Countdown to Craziness, we will profile each and every Duke player on the roster…

We’ll do it beginning with the “Walk-On” players … 

So here is Bermuda Bob’s Profile of #53, Brennan Besser

Brennan Besser is a 6’5″ and 188 lb Guard who hails from Chicago, where he played at the Latin School. His slot was made available last year once Coach K granted Justin Robinson a full scholarship.

As a High School Senior, he averaged 14.6 PPG and 7.1 RPG, and scored a high of 19 points in 5 games. He shot a wonderful 64% from the field.

Before settling down to playing basketball full time, he played golf his Freshman and Sophomore years, following his father’s role on the Marquette Golf Team. Brennan is brother to 4 older sisters.

While he only got off the Bench for a quick minute last year, he is one of the traditionally unsung heroes of the valued Duke’s practice squad, as have his predecessors.
