Basketball's Cain Takes Top Honor
Ryan Cain ’07 was awarded the 2007 Josten’s Trophy this spring, recognizing him as the best male Division III basketball student-athlete.
As a guard, Cain played a pivotal role in transforming WPI’s men’s basketball team into a regional and national powerhouse. Over the past four years, the team has had an impressive 89–20 record, has won four straight NEWMAC (New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference) regular season championships and two NEWMAC tournament titles, and appeared in the last three NCAA Division III championships. Cain, named NEWMAC Player of the Year, became WPI’s all-time leading scorer during the regular season finale, finishing his career with 1,813 points.
Cain became the first player during Head Coach Christopher Bartley’s six years at WPI to be named a preseason All-American by D3Hoops.com. He earned NEWMAC Rookie of the Year accolades as a freshman, was chosen NEWMAC Player of the Year as a sophomore, and was named All-New England by D3Hoops.com and the ECAC as a junior.Maintained by email@example.com
