Elnardo Webster, Ed.D. ’69

Elnardo Webster, Ed.D. ’69 and Keydren Clark ’06 were both recently named to a list of the top 25 men’s college basketball players in New Jersey’s history. The list was developed by Jerry Carino, a Gannett New Jersey sports writer and columnist since 1996. The article, which was published in The Asbury Park Press, named Clark as eleventh on the list and Webster as 22.

Keydren Clark ’06

Clark played at Saint Peter’s from 2002 to 2006 and holds nine career records, including 3,058 points scored with a scoring average of 25.9 per game. He was a highly decorated award winner in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) in his career after being named the MAAC Rookie of the Year and All-MAAC second team as a freshman and then was named to the All-MAAC first team in his final three seasons. Clark also earned the Haggerty Award in 2005. He currently plays for Peristeri of the Greek 2nd Division.

Webster was recognized in the article for his 24.8 average as well as his performance with the 1967-68 Saint Peter’s men’s basketball team. This team was recently inducted into the Saint Peter’s University Athletics Hall of Fame in 2016. The team advanced to the National Invitational Tournament (NIT) Semifinals thanks to a 102-93 double-overtime win against Marshall and 100-71 victory against top-ranked Duke I the second round. The “Run, Baby, Run” Peacocks were coached by legendary Saint Peter’s head coach Don Kennedy, who guided the team its second 20-win season in program history and a team-record 24 wins after finishing the year with a 24-4 mark. Webster went on to play one season in the American Basketball Association.
