Courtney to Meet the Alma Mater

Long before he became Cornell's Robert E. Gallagher '44 Head Coach of Men's Basketball, the Big Red were trying to figure out how to defend Bill Courtney.

During 1991 and 1992, Courtney was a two-time First Team All-Patriot League selection with Bucknell University. He graduated with 1,499 career points, a mark that still ranks among the top 10 all-time at the school. On January 4, 1992 in Lewisberg in a game against Cornell, Courtney scored 31 points, dished six assists and grabbed five rebounds, helping Bucknell to a 98-96 victory over the Big Red at Davis Gym. On December 29, 1990, Courtney, then a junior, scored a game-high 21 points with four rebounds and four assists in a 93-85 Big Red victory in Ithaca.

Courtney faces his alma mater on Monday, December 20, when Bucknell visits Cornell.
