Although no longer donning the red and white, former stars Ryan Wittman '10, Jeff Foote '10, Louis Dale '10 and Jon Jaques '10 are looking to continue their basketball careers at the professional level around the world.
Louis Dale has signed with German team BG Göttingen, while his former Cornell teammate, Ryan Wittman, makes his debut with the Boston Celtics and joins the New York Knicks in Las Vegas. Former tri-captain Jon Jaques has also become the fourth member of Cornell's class of 2010 to sign a professional basketball contract.
An overlooked, undersized, “too nice to be good” point guard who battled injuries his entire career and still earned three first-team All-Ivy selections. A high school multi-sport star who gracefully accepted a spot on the bench for his final year after previously starting and whose hustle, toughness and effort on defense may have exceeded that of any other player in the league.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. –– Cornell’s historic 2009-10 campaign began with the Red’s first win over a Southeastern Conference team in 37 years. It would end in the Sweet 16, at the hands of the top-ranked SEC team in the country.
