David Lee was a solid forward for Syracuse, who was noted for his fine play in 1907, starting all seven games. Lee would score a career high 18 points (a team season high) in a lopsided win over Hamilton, and eleven points in an important win against Pennsylvania.

He was also the team manager, which included scheduling the games and travel. However, in order to focus on academics, Lee resigned as team manager with one game remaining in the season. George Redlein assumed the responsibility for the end of the season.

Lee would become a prominent attorney in his hometown of Norwich, NY, establishing the law firm of Lee, Emerson & Ferrarese. He would be a New York State delegate to the presidential election four times, and would be a justice on the New York Supreme Court for several years.

Lee's younger brother Matthew came to Syracuse in the second semester of the 1906-1907 season, and would essentially fill David's position the next season.

Lee passed away in 1967.
