Below, some news and notes for Thursday...
  • While many Cornell supporters feared that George Mason might attempt to lure Bill Courtney to fill its head coaching vacancy, The George Mason Basketball Blog reports that the Patriots have commenced interviewing. Multiple sources have reported that GMU appears to be targeting as its top candidates Mike Young (Wofford head coach), Jeff Jones (American U. head coach), Jeff Capel (former Oklahoma and Old Dominion head coach) and Mike Lonergan (Vermont head coach).
  • The North Royalton Post notes that incoming Cornell recruit, Ned Tomic (North Royalton HS) North Royalton, OH, 6-7, F, "was named Academic All-Ohio by the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association. The Cornell recruit was one of 10 division I players [large schools] in the entire state to receive this honor and the only boy from the Northeast Ohio Conference. Tomic has a 4.22 grade-point average and is ranked first in his graduating class. He also finished with a 22.3-point scoring average and set North Royalton's single-season record with 293 rebounds."
