Bio

Jesse Perry has picked right up where he left off last season, his first as a Wildcat. Perry became the first JC transfer to enter the program on scholarship since Lamont Frazier in 1999-2000. As a junior, Perry grew into a team leader off the court late in the regular season (specifically on the road at USC and UCLA in Feb.), and began to demonstrate his strengths on the court, consistently, from late February through Arizona's deep NCAA Tournament run to the Elite Eight. Perry was named to the NCAA All-West Regional Team while helping lead Arizona past Memphis, Texas and Duke before falling by two points to Connecticut in the regional final.

As a senior, Perry has posted six double-doubles, the first of his career in a Wildcat uniform. In fact, Perry came flying out of the gates with four double-doubles in Arizona's first five games this season. He produced his sixth (16 points and 10 rebounds) in a 100-60 win over Bryant University before the Christmas holiday break. Perry is shooting 50% from the floor as a senior and 33% from behind the arc. Perry, who had 169 rebounds as a junior, is well on his way to having another big season on the glass as he's already pulled down 99 boards in 13 games.

Perry, who graduated high school from Gateway Tech, went on to play for John A. Logan Community College. In his two seasons, Perry helped lead his team to a 47-15 overall record. As a sophomore Perry averaged 17 points and 10 rebounds, and was named a first-team All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association. He led the Volunteers to a 24-7 record while shooting 40% from behind the arc as the school won the Great Rivers Athletic Conference in 2009-10. Perry was named conference Player of the Year.
