M. Basketball Names Tri-Captains
Three seniors will step up to share the captain title for the men’s basketball team in 2009-10, head coach Steve Donahue announced on Tuesday: center Jeff Foote and forwards Alex Tyler and Jon Jacques, who serves on the Sun’s editorial writing board. Foote and Tyler are two of the five returning starters from last year, and Jacques has been a vocal leader on the team and played in 13 games last season.
Foote is the reigning Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year after posting 7.2 rebounds per game and 2.1 blocks per game, both Ivy League-leading figures. He also bulked up in offseason while playing in the Howard Pulley Summer Pro League in St. Paul, Minn. — up to 265 from 245.
