- Noting VCU's intent to return to the NCAA Tournament, ESPN's Rumor Central writes, "VCU isn't skimping on early experience, either. 'The Rams will play NCAA qualifiers Winthrop, Wofford and archrival Richmond and could play Wake Forest and Cornell -- and others -- in tournaments,' reported the Richmond Times-Dispatch. "'The opportunity to play several NCAA tournament-caliber teams will go a long way toward preparing us to reach our own NCAA aspirations,' VCU coach Shaka Smart said in a release.'"
- The Cornell Daily Sun reports on the University's new financial aid policy which "will match the parental contribution and loan level offered to incoming students who have been accepted to Cornell and other Ivy League universities."
The Daily Pennsylvanian writes, "In what we think may be a sign of the times, this year's Princeton-Harvard basketball matchup will be televised on ESPN-U. With the Penn-Princeton rivalry on the back burner right now (Penn has lost the last three contests), is this the new rivalry for the Ivy League?"
- Harvard's Keith Wright announced on Twitter that he will lead the Ivy League in rebounding.
