Cornell-Bucknell Basketball History

Another post in our series, .

Cornell and Bucknell meet on Monday, December 20, 2010 in Ithaca. While both Cornell and Bucknell both formally recognize February 15, 1900 as the first official meeting in basketball between the Big Red and Bison, the February 28, 1898 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun (above) suggests that Cornell and Bucknell met on the hardwood during March of 1898.

This clipping comes from the January 7, 1920 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun. Below, the December 15, 1937 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun recaps Cornell's 47-28 win over the Bison on December 14. Check out the note's from the game following the recap in reference to Carl G. Snavely.
