Return Home for Reeves and Reynolds

Above, Cornell's Geoff Reeves (left) of Burlington, Kansas (point A above) and Pete Reynolds (right) of Blair, Nebraska (Point C above), make a return trip to their home region when the Big Red visit Lawrence, Kansas to face the Jayhawks on January 6, 2010. Two days later, on January 8, Cornell stays in the region with a visit to South Dakota.

Cornell Head Coach Steve Donahue makes it a practice to play games in each of his players' home region or city before they graduate.

KCTV in Kansas City reports the following with respect to the Cornell-Kansas game:
As the University of Kansas basketball team launches into one of it's most anticipated seasons in history, My-KSMO is the home to the Jayhawks and will have a series of specials to look at the team.The basketball specials will run prior to KU games that will appear on My-KSMO. Neal Jones will host the shows and will be joined by personalities from 810 WHB radio to discuss the Jayhawks and their match-ups.The schedule for the KU basketball specials is: Nov. 3 - Fort Hays State Nov. 10 Pittsburg State Nov. 13 Hofstra Nov. 19 Central Arkansas Dec. 2 Alcorn State Jan. 6 Cornell. All of the KU specials will start at 6:30 p.m., prior to KU games that appear on My-KSMO.

Vermilion, South Dakota, is also only about six hours from Lawrence.
You can bet that only one of those howling mid-western snowstorms will keep the Reeves/Reynolds fan contingent from making January 6-8 a Big Red doubleheader.
