Basketball standout Perry Bromwell made an immediate impact on the Penn basketball program during the 1984-85 season after transferring as a sophomore from Manhattan College. He led the Red and Blue in scoring (15.3 ppg), blocked shots (19) and field-goals made (167) in his first year in a Quakers’ uniform.  For his efforts, he received Honorable Mention for All-America and First-Team All-Ivy League honors, and was named co-MVP by his teammates.


The following season saw Bromwell continue at his breakneck pace, again earning Honorable Mention for All-America and was a First-Team All-Ivy League honoree after shooting 74 percent from the free throw line and over 50 percent from the field.


As a senior during the 1986-87 season, Bromwell became a tri-captain and led the Ivy League in scoring, including recording double-digits in the final 22 games of his career.


During his time at Penn, Bromwell led the Quakers to two Ivy League championships and two trips to the NCAA Tournament.  In 1984-85, the Quakers won the Ancient Eight title and made their way to the First Round of the NCAA Championships where they fell to Memphis State, 67-55. Bromwell led the Quakers in scoring with 16 points in Penn’s 12th trip to the Big Dance. He helped the Red and Blue to another Ivy League championship in 1986-87 before the team fell to North Carolina, 113-82, in the NCAA Tournament’s First Round. Bromwell ended his career with a 19-point effort against the Tar Heels.


Over the course of his collegiate career, Bromwell only missed four of the 80 games scheduled and recorded double-scoring figures in 76 contests.  He is one of only five players to have been a three-time recipient of the Arthur Kiefaber Most Valuable Player award, as voted on by his Penn teammates.  Bromwell also finished his career at Penn as a two-time Best Defensive Player award winner.


Bromwell still holds the Penn record for best three-point percentage (50.6 percent, 43-85) in a season and finished his Penn career with 1,265 points.
