News and Notes: Monday Edition

Above, Lou Jordan (Cornell '59). Jordan was a first team All-Ivy selection as a junior when he placed fourth in the league in scoring. He won the Ivy scoring crown his senior year and was named All-Ivy second team.  Captain of the team his senior year, he was the 42nd draft choice of the 1959 NBA Draft and turned down an offer to play with the Detroit Pistons and opted instead to enter Cornell’s Medical College in New York City  Below, some news and notes for Monday...

  • Below is a partial list of some of the Cornellians that have played professional basketball in recent years.  The list includes Jeff Foote who spent time in the NBA last season with New Orleans Hornets as well as in the NBA D-League.  Other former Cornell D-Leaguers include Ryan Wittman (Cornell '10), Cody Toppert ('05) and Jeff Aubry ('99).

CBB, regarding your 8/6/12 11:57 AM tweet this morning that, "considering where Cornell finished in last season's Ivy standings and where some pundits place them this year, the schedule is BRUTAL," don't all the pre-season predictions concern only where we will finish within the Ivies?

The excellent strength of our out-of-conference schedule should, at the margin, IMPROVE our league play and, if anythng, improve our Ivy results. Conservative predictions for us say more about who we lost relative to other Ivy rosters than it does about our OOC schedule.
