News and Notes: Evening Edition

Below, some news and notes for the evening...

  • On June 14, The 10th Annual All-Canada Classic will take place at the Air Canada Center, featuring the nation's top 20 players. The event will include incoming Cornell recruit, 6'6" Manny Sahota of Brampton, Ontario and St. Marguerite D'Youville Secondary School. Other all-stars are headed to Stanford, Minnesota, Santa Clara, Harvard and Robert Morris among other Division I programs.
  • Luis Guzman, a graduating senior from Temple told OwlScoop.com, "I still watch the tape of Cornell, and it still eats me alive. I think we could have won that game." Guzman is referring to Temple's first round NCAA Tournament exit to Cornell.
  • Fullcourt Press is among the numerous sources reporting the news of Ryan Wittman's June 7 workout with the Sacramento Kings.
  • With respect to roster news and notes, most of Cornell's basketball players for next season are enrolled in Cornell's undergraduate business program, which also happens to be currently ranked No. 5 in the country in Business Week magazine and No. 10 by U.S. News & World Report. Notably, only Cornell and Penn offer undergraduate degree programs in business among the Ivy League schools and both schools use their programs to their advantage during recruiting. Below are the academic programs and year of study for the nineteen (19) Cornell basketball players projected on the 2010-2011 roster.
