News and Notes: Monday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Monday...
  • Rivals.com lists the low and mid-major coaches that could make the jump to high majors next season and the listing includes Princeton's Sydney Johnson. Rivals.com notes, "As for the idea that a "big" school wouldn't take a chance on an Ivy coach, there are four former Ivy coaches now working in a Big Six conference -- Donahue in the ACC, Northwestern's Bill Carmody in the Big Ten, Oregon State's Craig Robinson in the Pac-10 and Georgetown's John Thompson III in the Big East. Johnson was on Georgetown's staff when he was hired away by Princeton -- and Thompson was Princeton's coach when he was hired away by Georgetown."
  • Incoming Cornell recruit, Dwight Tarwater is averaging 5.5 points per game for his Richardson Construction team in the Knoxville Rocky Top Summer League.
  • In the New York Knicks' opening summer league game in Las Vegas against Denver, on Sunday Ryan Wittman (Cornell '10) did not get off the bench. The Cornell Daily Sun notes, "Wittman did not play in Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets, per coach's decision. He will need to wait another day to make his debut on the floor with the Knicks. Despite trailing by as much as 17, New York battled back to tie things at 70 with 1:48 remaining in the third quarter before ultimately falling to Denver, 100-90." In the Knicks' second game, the Sun notes, "On Monday, Wittman...shot 1-for-3 with a 3-pointer in just over nine minutes of action, as the Knicks evened their summer league record at 1-1 after taking down the L.A. Lakers, 71-63."
Above, the Knicks misspelled Wittman's last name on the back of his No. 25 jersey. Photo courtesy of Jon Jaques ('10) who was in attendance at the game with Jeff Foote ('10).

In all fairness, the Knicks will probably misspell "Stoudemire" too.

miss-spelling a players last name on a uniform is unacceptable.

he was really 1-2 as the other 3 he missed was a turnaround heave as the 3rd quarter ended
