Harvard Hoops Star Turns Pro

7.22.10

Harvard basketball star Jeremy Lin ’10, a six-foot, three-inch, 200-pound guard, has signed with the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association, according to a Boston Globe report.  Lin co-captained and led the Crimson to a sterling 21-8 record last season. An extraordinarily versatile player, profiled in Harvard Magazine in 2009, Lin ranked among the Ivy League leaders in nearly every offensive and defensive statistical category. He might be, after Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets, the world's best-known basketball player of Asian descent. A native of Palo Alto, California, Lin will now have a chance to play for the professional team he grew up watching.
