A Date in Cornell Basketball History: Yale 1914

Above, excerpt clippings from the Cornell Daily Sun's February 6, 1914 issue previewing Cornell's Saturday, February 7, 1914 game with Yale in the Old Armory in Ithaca. Also shown, a team photo of the 1913-1914 Big Red and a ticket stub to the game. Far right, the February 9 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun recaps Cornell's 39-26 victory. The Big Red would go on that season to capture the 1913-1914 EIBL title, the program's second consecutive championship, finishing 14-2 overall and 8-2 in the league.

The programs date the beginning of their series back to 1898. This Saturday, Cornell once again hosts Yale with the Big Red celebrating Senior Night. Come witness one of college basketball oldest rivalries in Newman Arena.
