Print More

Junior forward Ryan Wittman was named the No. 10 shooter in the nation by Fran Fraschilla, an analyst with ESPN and former head coach of St. John’s and New Mexico.
Wittman led the team in scoring throughout the 2007-08 campaign that saw the Red cruise undefeated through Ivy League play before falling to Stanford in the NCAA tournament. He finished with 424 points for 15.1 points per game, good for fourth in the Ivy League.
The son of Minnesota Timberwolves coach Randy Wittman, Ryan excelled all season from behind the 3-point arc. He connected on 78 3-pointers for a .459 percentage — not far off his overall shooting percentage of .465. Wittman led the Ivy League in 3-pointers for the second year and ranks No. 4 on the school’s career 3-point list and No. 1 in 3-point shooting percentage. His freshman total of 93 3’s was a school record.
