News and Notes: Wednesday Edition

Below, some news and notes...

  • Of the sixty players projected by NBA Draft Net as draftees in the 2012 NBA Draft, Cornell faced eleven of them at least once during the past four seasons.  These opponents include:
    Above, Herb Pope and Seton Hall visited Cornell on November 20, 2009.
    • The Plano Star writes of incoming Cornell freshman, Holt Harmon (Plano West HS), Plano, TX, 6-9, F, "Recent Plano West graduates Holt Harmon and TJ Cline were at Oklahoma Baptist's Noble Complex Saturday for the 47th Annual Faith 7 Bowl. The all-star event matches up basketball players from Texas against hoopsters from Oklahoma. There was only one lead change in the game and it came in the first quarter as shots were falling early and often for Texas, which held a 62-38 lead at the break. The boys from the Lone Star State bumped it up to 107-80 by the end of the night. Harmon posted nine points and 10 boards in the win."
    • Committed class of 2013 Cornell recruit, Tim Higgins (Paul VI HS) Fairfax, VA, 6-10, is interviewed below  (at the 0:21 second spot) with his AAU team, Team Takeover. Higgins told DMV Elite that he is looking forward to the summer AAU season. “It’s nice to have it [my college committment] wrapped up,” Higgins said, “because I feel a lot more comfortable out there, and it’s not as much pressure to go out there and impress a coach. It also helps me focus on getting my teammates better and helping them get the opportunities for scholarships and that sort of thing.”

    And beyond the 60 players currently listed on NBADraft.net, let's see if Mangano (Yale) is drafted as well. If not, he could well end up in the league anyway.

    Rosen has a shot as well.

    Did you know Rosen is 5'11"? Didn't realize he's so short. Not good for him and the NBA

    Mangano and Anthony (The Brow) Davis are almost the same height (6'9"ish) yet AD's wingspan is over 7 inches longer. He's gonna need a tailor. My favorite measurement - height in shoes - not available for Mangano. Can't afford shoes w/o the Athletic scholarship?
