A year ago, Geoff Reeves ('10) (No. 15 above) helped Cornell to a 4-0 record against A-10 teams, recording '09-'10 wins against Temple, UMass, St. Joseph's and La Salle. Tonight, Cornell faces another A-10 team in St. Bonaventure. Below, Brian Delaney of the Ithaca Journal gives some thoughts on the evening's contest.
In case you missed it, we had a preview story and a Scouting St. Bonaventure in today's paper. Go to the sports front and read them if you haven't already. I'll have updates on twitter tonight from Newman Arena, where the Bonnies pay a visit. Getting a win over an A-10 team would be quality for Cornell, which looked much improved Wednesday night against Delaware.
One last thing: if you missed it, Yale picked off Steve Donahue and Boston College last night to give the Ivy League a win over the Eagles for the third straight season (Harvard did it the last two years). While its doubtful that Austin Morgan is going to shoot the ball as well as he did last night, there's no question that Yale has done enough through two weeks to warrant both higher consideration and respect than what they've been getting (from me at least). Don't care what your personnel looks like on paper - any Ivy that beats an ACC team is a team worth respecting and watching. A good Yale team makes the Ivies quite a bit tougher, as the John J. Lee Amphitheater can be a very tough place to win when the Bulldogs are competitive.
