CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Jimmy Bartolotta capped a record-breaking season with the MIT basketball program as the junior became the second player in team history to be named to the D3Hoops All-America teams. Bartolotta, who was the third-highest vote getter for Northeast Region Player of the Year honors, was named Honorable Mention All-America.
Bartolotta closes the 2007-08 campaign with a bevy of individual awards. In addition to joining Mike D'Auria '06 as the only MIT player to earn All-America accolades, Bartolotta was a First Team Academic All-America, a finalist for the prestigious Jostens Trophy, and was selected to the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Northeast All-District Second Team.
Bartolotta's nod by the NABC is just the second in program lore, following Dave Tomlinson's `91 second-team selection in 1991.
Bartolotta set a school record by averaging 23.9 points per game in 24 games played. He was the only player in the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) to rank among the league leaders in every statistical category, including second overall in assists (4.0) and steals (2.3).
