Jerome Allen shows that he's still got it


The Preston and Steve morning radio show from local Philadelphia station 93.3 WMMR kicked off the 16th annual Camp Out for Hunger campaign this week, and the star of the show was no other than Penn basketball coach Jerome Allen. 

Allen proved he’s still got the magic touch, sinking buckets left and right in a “Pop a Shot” arcade competition between the City 6 basketball coaches to raise money for the non-profit food bank Philabundance. Unsurprisingly, he took first place.

Although Allen is five years removed from his professional playing career and 20 years removed from his time as a member of a talented Penn team, he showed no rust, take home the golden “Yeah-A-Cup” plaque.

One of the greatest Penn basketball players of all time, Allen claimed three Ivy titles during his playing time for the Quakers. He also holds the Penn records for assists (504) and steals (166).

But out of all the accomplishments in Allen’s career, winning the golden cup plaque has got to be near the top.
