  • Dansville High School graduate and 1999 Alfred University alumnus Brian Quinlan was inducted into Alfred University’s Hall of Fame during a ceremony Oct. 6.
    Quinlan played four seasons on the AU men’s basketball team from 1995-99, and ended his career as one of the most prolific scorers in team history.
    A two-year team captain from 1997-99, Quinlan was the Presidents Athletic Conference (PAC) Rookie of the Year as a freshman in the 1995-96 year. The following season, he helped lead the Saxons to a 15-11 record, the PAC conference crown and a berth in the NCAA Division III?national tournament.
    As a senior, Quinlan helped lead the team to an 18-10 mark and a runner-up finish at the ECAC Upstate championship tournament. He describes as his greatest thrill as an AU athlete the 10-game winning streak that ended with the Saxons advancing as a seventh seed to the ECAC Upstate tournament title game.
    The Saxons beat the tournament’s second and third seeds before falling to top-seeded Potsdam in the championship game.
    Quinlan was a Second Team National Association of Basketball Coaches district all-star as a senior, an honor that was given to just 80 Division III players nationwide that season.
    Following his senior year at Alfred, he was honored with the ECAC Merit Medal. He holds AU career records for three-point field goal attempts (624) and three-pointers made (247) and ranks fifth all-time in scoring at AU with 1,487 career points.
    Quinlan graduated from Alfred University in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in ceramic engineering. He went on to earn a master’s degree in ceramic engineering from AU in 2001.
    He is a senior materials process engineer at IBM Microelectronics in Hopewell Junction. He and his wife, Tracy, live in Poughkeepsie with their children Aiden and Griffin.
