SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Washington State University men's basketball's all-time leading scorer and Sacramento businessman Isaac Fontaine was honored by the City of Sacramento and Mayor Kevin Johnson Friday at the Reznick Group's Capitol Mall offices.
In a proclamation signed by Mayor Johnson and the Sacramento City Council, Fontaine was recognized for his achievements on the basketball court which lead to his induction into the Pac-10 Basketball Hall of Honor in March at the Pac-10 Basketball Tournament.
A member of the Cougar basketball team from 1993-97, Fontaine became the team's all-time career leading scorer with 2,003 points. He is also the team's career leader for 3-point percentage (.457) and ranks second in consecutive games started (90). Fontaine earned All-Pac-10 Conference honors during each of the four years he played. As a senior, he was a finalist for the John R. Wooden Award and was Washington State's 1997 Pac-10 Medal winner.
Fontaine is one of just eight WSU basketball players to play in three postseason tournaments as he led the Cougars to the NCAA Tournament in 1994 and the NIT in 1995 and 1996. He graduated from WSU in 1997 with a business management degree. He currently works as a senior associate at Reznick Group, a national public accounting firm. A native of Sacramento, Fontaine graduated from Jesuit High School in Carmichael, Calif. in 1993.
