News and Notes: Thursday Edition

Below, news and notes for Thursday...

  • The Cornell Daily Sun notes that Cornell basketball "was placed among the best according to the NCAA Division I Academic Progress Report for 2010-2011."
  • Here is a link to another video promo from Cody Toppert (Cornell '05) for his company, Toppert Basketball Services.  The video includes footage from Toppert's time in high school at Albuquerque Academy where he was the New Mexico High School Player of the Year.  Highlights also include game footage from his time at Cornell and his professional adventures in the NBA D-League and in Europe.  Toppert was Steve Donahue's first recruit.  When he and Eric Taylor (Cornell '05, All Ivy League 2005) arrived in Ithaca, Cornell was coming off a 7-20 (3-11 Ivy, 7th place) season, Donahue's first year.  During Toppert's and Taylor's senior year, Cornell finished 2nd in the Ivy League with an 8-6 record.
