News and Notes: Late Afternoon/Evening Edition

Below, some afternoon/evening news and notes...Above, a Cornell-Harvard program from 1950...
  • NorthShoreofLongIsland.com notes, "Road contests against Big East Conference opponents University of Connecticut and University of Notre Dame, as well as Ivy League champions and Sweet 16 participants Cornell University, highlight the 2010-11 nonconference schedule for the Stony Brook University men's basketball team, according to head coach Steve Pikiell. The defending America East Conference regular season champions will also host five contests at Pritchard Gymnasium after recording a program record five sellouts last season....The Big Red of Cornell will host the Seawolves on Jan. 8. Cornell won its third straight Ivy League title last season and then advanced to its first-ever NCAA Sweet 16."
  • The NBA D-League has announced its open tryouts schedule. Cornellians, Jeff Aubry ('99) and Cody Toppert ('05) are both alumni of the NBA's D-League. Aubry was drafted in 2001 by the D League's Fayetteville Patriots (5th round, 33rd overall pick). During 2001-2002 with the Patriots, Aubry averaged 7.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks. Aubry returned to Fayetteville for the 2002-2003 season and became a regular starter. He averaged 6.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game. After playing a few pro seasons outside of the U.S., Aubry returned to the D League during February 2005 and played with the now discontinued Florida Flame franchise where he averaged 6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.4 blocks per game. Toppert averaged 3.7 points and 1.3 assists per game during the 2005-2006 season for the Albuequrque Thunderbirds. His brother, Chad, currently plays for the franchise.
  • Below, NBA TV caught up with Harvard's Jeremy Lin as he heads off to the NBA. We salute Jeremy, and wish him luck. Thanks for the memories!

I bet walking awkwardly around Times Square in NEW YORK CITY is really helping him transition to life as an NBA player in San Fran. . .

Love the caddy "wish him luck" followed by a collage of pictures of his poor/frustrated play in games against Cornell. Well done.
