A Date in Cornell Basketball History

Above, the cover of the March 9, 1961 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun. Articles on the first page cover the the three month old John F. Kennedy Administration and student protests to end segregation in the deep south. Also on the cover, the recap of Cornell's 107-79 thrashing of Syracuse the previous evening. The 1960-1961 season was Cornell coach Sam MacNeil's second year at the helm. His Big Red would finish 14-10 that year. The following season, Cornell would improve to 18-7.
