Yorkville-native and former Notre Dame High School basketball star Sean Burton on Friday was inducted into Ithaca College’s Hall of Fame during the school’s Alumni Weekend.

Burton, the Tri-Valley League Player on the Year during the 2004-05 season, led the Jugglers to two Section III titles. He also broke Notre Dame’s 3-pointers made record.

Burton, who played basketball for the Bombers from 2005-09, ranks first all time in free throw percentage (.900), second in career assists (556), third all-time in career points (1,736), third in career 3-pointers made (261) and sixth in career steals (163).

Ithaca’s only three-time all American averaged 22.1 points per game as a senior, and led the Bombers to a program best 24-3 record. That team reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to DeSales University 77-71.

After his senior season at Ithaca College, Burton headed overseas where he led the Iceland Express — a team in Iceland’s top men’s professional basketball league — to a championship in his first season with the team.

After two all-star seasons in Iceland and a Powerade Cup Most Valuable Player trophy, Burton returned to the Utica area, to join the Utica College men’s basketball coaching staff as an assistant in 2011.

In 2014, Burton accepted as assistant coaching position with the Babson College men’s basketball team. He helped the Beavers to a program best 29-3 record and four NCAA Tournament wins before stumbling in the semifinals to Augustana during the 2014-15 season.

Since 2015, Burton has worked as an assistant under his former head coach at Ithaca, Jim Mullins. In his four seasons on the Bombers’ coaching staff, the team has a 55-51 overall record and appearances in the last two Liberty League Championship Tournaments.
