Jarrett Durham capped an outstanding basketball career at Aliquippa High by being named to the Section 3 All Star team as a senior in 1967. Unfortunately, the strong Aliquippa cagers were in the same section as Ambridge High Schoolís best basketball squad, which breezed to the state championship that season. Some sports writers thought the Quips were the second best team in the state in 1967. At Duquesne University his freshman year, Jarrett scored 296 points for an average of 21.1 per game as the frosh squad went unbeaten. As a sophomore, he won the MVP award in the Steel Bowl tournament, scoring 15 points in a 57-42 win over Pitt to clinch the title for the Dukes. Later that season, he scored 30 points in a win over Providence and was named Player of the Year in 1969 by the Pittsburgh Area Basketball Writers. Jarrett, 6'-4" and 180 pounds, was not big by modern basketball standards, but he led the Dukes in his junior year with an 18.9 points per game average as they earned an NIT bid. As a senior, Jarrett was named All East and honorable mention All American as he became the Dukesí fourth all time leading scorer with 1339 points. The 1970 Dukes had a 20-3 record and were ranked No 11. In the NCAA tournament, Jarrett scored 25 points in a win over Xavier and 18 points when the Dukes whipped Niagara 99-69. After college, he played a short stint with the New York Nets of the American Basketball Association before returning to Duquesne for his masterís degree. He served as Duquesne assistant coach before becoming head cage coach at the Community College of Beaver County in 1976. His two teams there had records of 13-9 and 17-10. Jarrett then served as assistant coach at Robert Morris College.
