Albert Award Female Nominees Announced

Five female student-athletes up for Lafayette's top athletic honor

A stalwart on the last Leopard men's basketball team, Otis is still the second-leading scorer in school history with 1,870 points.

An awesome rebounder, Otis led the team in that category for all four seasons he played. In addition, Otis led the team in scoring as a sophomore, junior and senior. With 35 points in the Leopards' 83-86 upset of NCAA Tournament bound Notre Dame, Otis recorded Lafayette's 16th-highest single-game point total. He helped lead the Maroon and White to a combined 69-48 record in his four seasons of basketball on College Hill.
