From the Competitive 60s to the Down Early 70s...

Between 1964 and 1967, Cornell finished three consecutive seasons in second place in the Ivy League. The Big Red would win 19 games in two of those seasons. But the Big Red's fortunes would turn quickly. Between the 1970-1971 and the 1973-1974 seasons, the Big Red compiled four consecutive 1-13 conference records in Ivy League play. This would be the "darkest era" of Cornell basketball. Below, a Cornell Daily Sun article from February 4, 1971 pleads for Cornell hockey fans to support the basketball team. Above, some Cornell media guides from the down years of the early 1970s.
