News and Notes: Tuesday Edition

Below some news and notes...
  • Rivals.com's Steve Megargee and Mike Huguenin write, "What are some... streaks that will be on the line this season? Read on and find out... Temple coach Fran Dunphy's streak of 10 consecutive first-round losses in the NCAA tourney: This is not a consecutive-seasons streak; rather, it covers the most recent of Dunphy's NCAA appearances at Penn and Temple. Important to note, though, is that only once in the streak has Dunphy's team been seeded better than 11th; Temple was a No. 5 when it was upset in the first round by Cornell last season... Army, Maryland-Eastern Shore, New Hampshire, Tennessee State and Towson's streak of 14 consecutive losing seasons... Army, which had more wins against Ivy League schools (five) than against teams in its own league (four), returns just one of its top five scorers and again looks as if it will reside in the Patriot League basement"
  • The Daily Pennsylvanian's Calder Silcox writes, "I'll also link to Cornell Basketball Blog, which has posted a projected schedule for the Big Red, only because they list Penn traveling to Ithaca Feb. 11, and hosting Cornell two weeks later on the 26th. I have no reason to believe that are either right or wrong, but I thought I'd post it for speculation's sake. Based on the Ivy travel schedule, we would go to Columbia on the 12th, and host them on the 25th."
