- Rush The Court has named Andrew Ferry its "Sharpshooter of the Week" for the non-BCS conferences ("the other 26") and writes:
Andrew Ferry, Cornell—After having the most successful season in the history of its basketball program last year, Cornell has predictably struggled this year with the departure of Steve Donahue to Boston College and the graduation of several of its best players. Beginning the year with a 2-9 record, the Big Red were sorely in need of a win, and Andrew Ferry came through in a big way against a solid Wofford team by going 7-8 from downtown. Cornell defeated the Terriers 86-80.

"When I went out to Amherst, Mass., a couple weeks ago and watched UMass lose to Central Florida in front of a sparse crowd, I couldn’t help but remember what Travis Ford left Derek Kellogg... In case you forgot, here’s a reminder of the nine-man class that Ford put together back in 2007...I’ll even update most of the situations. It’s not pretty:
Gary Correia – Averaging 4.3 points and 2.2 assists as starting point guard
Trey Lang – Averaging 1.3 points in three games
Matt Hill – Averaging 0.9 points this season
Trevon Wilcher – averaging 1.2 points at Maine
Papa Lo – averaging 0.3 points at Bryant
Max Groebe – averaging 6.5 points at Cornell
Matt Glass – averaging 9.9 points and shooting 46 percent from deep at Vermont.
Marcus Mathews – Averaging 6.8 points at Southern New Hampshire
Tyrell Lynch – Your guess is as good as mine.
