News and Notes: Saturday Edition

Below, news and notes for Saturday...
  • The Ridiculous Upside blog writes, "There aren't a lot of big men in the D-League, but [Keith] Benson (along with Jeff Foote) were my personal favorites when it came to [NBA] call-up candidates."
  • Jeff Aubry ('99) scored 12 points on Wednesday as his Arecibo Capitanes dominated Caciques de Humacao 97-82 in Puerto Rico's BSN action. Aubry, a 6'11" center, is a veteran of the NBA D-League and is a potential member of Puerto Rico's national team which will play this July in the 2012 FIBA World Olympics Qualifying Tournament. Aubry remains Cornell's career block shot leader (191). Cornell freshman, Shonn Miller, who broke Aubry's freshman season record, is on track to set the new career record. Miller has 48 blocked shots after one season. Aubry had 22 blocks as a freshman at Cornell.
  • On Friday evening, Cody Toppert ('05) scored 2 points as his Mallorca team defeated Clinicas Rincon 79-73 in Spain's LEB Gold (2nd Division) league action. Toppert is a veteran of the NBA D-League. Toppert was a fear fearless shooter while at Cornell. While Ryan Wittman is Cornell all-time leader in three-pointer attempts (875), Toppert is 2nd at 674, followed by Chris Wroblewski (5th place, 456) and in just two seasons at Cornell, Drew Ferry (9th place, 420). Wittman remains the Ivy League's most prolific all time outside shooter, holding records as the all time leader in career 3-pointers made (377) and attempted (875) and 15th in career percentage (43.1%)
