AT DARTMOUTH ... Junior: Still battling ankle problems, appeared in just nine games. Had eight points, two rebounds and two assists at Harvard and five points against Albany. Shut it down for the final 10 games.

Freshman: Lettered off the bench. Came off the bench at Penn in late January and had seven points, two steals and one rebound in 17 minutes. Netted six points and five rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench against Princeton the next night.

BEFORE DARTMOUTH ... Second all-time scorer in Covington history. Won eight varsity letters: four in golf and four in basketball. Two-year captain of both teams. As a junior and senior on the hardwood, Jason helped lead Covington to the league and sectional championships. Hit a turnaround shot at the buzzer to give Covington the district championship as a junior.

COACH DUNN SAYS ... "If he's healthy he can be a major contributor. Has the potential to be a good rebounding guard. Can be a prolific shooter when he gets it going."
