News and Notes: Saturday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Saturday....
  • The Chicago Sun Times writes, "Highland Park Wroblewski caps off stellar career at Cornell-He earned accolades. He reached milestones. Highland Park’s Chris Wroblewski certainly made his mark playing Division I basketball. The star guard capped off his career with Cornell University by earning first-team all-Ivy League honors this winter. No doubt, that honor was expected. He was a second-team selection as a junior, while he was honorable mention as a sophomore when his team went deep into the NCAA Tournament (Sweet 16). Wroblewski also had a celebrated first season with Cornell. He was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Year during the 2008-09 season. He also was clutch in the classroom. He was a two-time Capital One Academic All-American. Milestones? Wroblewski scored his 1,000th point this season. He ranks 13th all-time at the school (1,202 points). And he ranks No. 1 at the school in career assists (482), while he’s No. 4 in three-point field goals made (189) and No. 9 in free-throw percentage (82.3) and steals (139). Meanwhile, Wroblewski didn’t spend a lot of time on the bench. He played in 119 games (second all-time at Cornell) and logged 3,584 minutes (third all-time). His senior season was, as usual, very steady. He led the Big Red in scoring (11.5) and ended up third in the conference in assists (5.3) and third in steals (1.6)."
