News and Notes: Friday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Friday...


  • The Shawnee News-Star of Oklahoma notes that 12 of the top players from Texas will face 12 of the best players from Oklahoma in the 2012 Faith 7 Bowl on June 9 in Shawnee, Oklahoma at Oklahoma Baptist University. Among the players selected include five committed recruits headed to Big 12 schools. Selected to the Texas All Stars is committed Cornell recruit, Holt Harmon (Plano West HS), Plano, TX, 6-9, F.
  • With Brown University hiring Penn assistant coach Mike Martin as its new head coach, Dick Jerardi of the Philadelphia Daily News writes, "When 63 wins in four seasons is the high-water mark in school history, you know there is not much history at Brown. Moving up in the Ivy League is never easy, but first Cornell and then Harvard proved it is possible to interrupt the Penn-Princeton axis. Martin will now get a chance to see if it can be done at Brown."
  • The Arecibo Capitanes of Puerto Rico's professional basketball league, the BSN, published a column on the Capitanes' official website about the contributions the team has received from Jeff Aubry (Cornell '99).  Arecibo is in the league's championship series and Aubry is averaging 3.6 points and 6.3 rebounds per game for the team.  Here is a link to the Google translation of the story.
