Get all the information you need about Cornell's game tonight at Yale and visit to Brown on Saturday with with The Cornell Basketball Blog's Game Preview Center. Below, a bit of afternoon news and notes...
  • In roster report news, we have updated our roster calculations for next season. Below is also listing of the seniors expected to graduate for each of the eight Ivy League schools. Princeton and Penn appear the hardest hit in terms of graduations, followed by Cornell, Brown, Yale, Dartmouth and Harvard, which has no seniors. Several teams are expecting the return of 5th year seniors, including Columbia (Brian Grimes), Penn (Tyler Bernardini) and Cornell (Max Groebe, Anthony Gatlin).
-Brown (Peter Sullivan, Garrett Leffelman, Adrian Williams, Chris Taylor)
-Columbia (Asenso Ampim, Max Craig, Zack Crimmins)
-Cornell (Adam Wire, Mark Coury, Aaron Osgood)
-Dartmouth (Ronnie Dixon, Clive Weeden)
-Harvard (none)
-Penn (Jack Eggleston, Andreas Schreiber, Conor Turley, Zach Gordon, Darren Smith, Dan Monckton)
-Princeton (Kareem Maddox, Dan Marvaides, Bobby Foley)
-Yale (Porter Braswell, Raffi Mantilla, Alfonso Costa)
  • Jim Pagels of the Columbia Spectator announces, "I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Columbia isn’t going to win the Ivy League this year. Ever since the two Cornell wins to open up Ivy play, my fellow columnists have seemed like over-supportive parents who hire an NBA agent for their son after he scores twelve points in his youth YMCA game... Winning those first two games against Cornell seemed huge at the time, as Columbia hasn’t taken down the three-time defending champ in five years. But after Cornell’s subsequent collapses against Dartmouth and Harvard last weekend, it’s become clear that the 0-4 Big Red is a mere shadow of its former selves without Ryan Wittman and Jeff Foote."
