Hoop Dreams

Two former Lions basketball players are heading for the pros.

In September, Jeff Coby ’17 signed a contract with the New York Knicks. Coby, a Haitian National Team standout, spent his rookie season playing for teams in Spain.

In August, Camille Zimmerman ’18 signed a contract to play for Kouvottaret, a club team in Finland’s premier women’s basketball league. The 6'1" guard-forward wrapped up her collegiate career as Columbia’s all-time leader in points (1,973), rebounds (940), field goals made (728), field goals attempted 1,707), free-throw percentage (.826), games played (113) and games started (112).
