News and Notes: Tuesday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Tuesday...

  • Aaron Osgood ('11) and Adam Wire ('11) report from their blog, Danish Duo, that their first game is on Saturday. Osgood and Wire play for the Vaerlose club in Denmark. Vaerlose will face the Aalborg Vikings in the opener which features a familiar face to the Cornellians, former Lehigh stalwart point guard, Marquis Hall. Below, Louis Dale ('10) defends Hall in 2008 while in the background, Wire and Osgood watch the action from the bench.
  • The Bleacher Report writes on the topic of "Showdowns We Can't Wait to See" in regards to the newly aligned ACC and states of a highly anticipated Boston College vs. Syracuse match up, "Boston College coach Steve Donahue has faced Jim Boeheim a handful of times in the past while coaching the underdog Cornell Big Red- and he gave the Orange a run for their money."

Can you disclose who is visiting this weekend? Harvard has tweeted this info, and I'd love to see who's in play for the Big Red.

Nope, Cornell likes to keep this stuff close to the chest.

Bummer. Is the talent at or above the level of those kids who are visiting the Crimson?

Not important who visits, its important who commits.

It doesn't help much if you have a bunch of visitors, but you are a long shot to get verbals from any of them.

That's true, but Amaker does have a pretty impressive track record of pulling in recruits, even if his methods are questionable. And Harvard does have some pretty impressive freshman talent.

What impressive record? He's been there 5 years and Kenyatta Smith is the only guy on the team who was a legitimate high major talent (i.e. multiple BCS offers).
