" I don't think you get more textbook that him." " I think coming into college that was the thing that I did the best."
SHOOTING A BASKETBALL REMAINS SOMETHING RYAN WITTMAN DOES BETTER THAN MOST "This is Wittman for 3…"
BUT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW HIM AS A SHOOTER, YOU MIGHT KNOW HIM AS RANDY'S KID.

" Whenever you have a dad that's won a national championship in the NCAA tournament and coaches in the NBA, you're going to get those recognitions, but I don't mind it too much. He's helped my game out tremendously, learning from someone who knows so much about the game, it's been nothing but a help to me."
IF SOMEONE FINDS OUT ABOUT RYAN'S ACCOMPLISHED FAMILY LINEAGE, IT LIKELY WON'T BE BECAUSE HE MENTIONS IT.

" You have to pull teeth to get something out of him about his experiences in the NBA, and I think the guys really respect that. They know where he's been and he never brings it up."
THE LEADING SCORER FOR THE BIG RED ISN'T SATISFIED IN JUST BEING A SHOOTER, HE WANTS TO BE A COMPELTE PLAYER.
" There's been games where he just has one or 2 three-point attempts, and yet he still has 15, 18 points on back to the basket post ups."
NOW HEADED TO THE NCAA TOURNAMENT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 20 YEARS, CORNELL'S BEST SHOT AT WINNING IS TO GET RED HOT FROM THE OUTSIDE. AND THEIR BEST SHOT FROM THE OUTSIDE, IS SOPHOMORE GUARD RYAN WITTMAN.
