News and Notes: Thursday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Thursday...
  • The Yamhill Valley (Oregon) News-Register writes of the Yamhill Highflyers in the International Basketball League and Jason Hartford (Cornell '08), "Jason Hartford, a former [IBL] all-star, is back after playing overseas during the team’s hiatus. A 6-foot-9 forward, he helped lead Cornell to an NCAA tournament appearance before playing for the Highflyers in 2009 and 2010. 'He’s gotten some looks at NBA summer camps,' [general manager Eric] Bailey said, 'and has been MVP of leagues overseas.' Hartford, who can play every position except point guard, is back in Yamhill Valley because of his time out of the country. Bailey said players had tap water in the water bottles, causing some intestinal distress for Hartford, who had to return to the United States early. 'Just a great overall talent,' Bailey said. 'We’re lucky to have him back.'"
