News and Notes: Wednesday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Wednesday...

  • Dime Magazine profiles Columbia's Brian Barbour and writes, "...Columbia wasn’t the only improving Ivy League team; as a whole, the league has been closing the gap in college basketball for a while now, becoming a factor in the NCAA Tournament in recent years. With Cornell busting through to the Sweet Sixteen in 2010..."
  • Lawrence R. Davis, who lettered in Cornell Basketball in 1944, passed away in September.

Still remember AT's fire. He brought it to every game. One of the intangibles of 2008-09-10 Ivy championship teams.

AT's 6 points in 25 seconds to snatch a victory at Lavietes pavilion against Harvard during the 2008 Ivy season ranks as one of the greatest Cornell bball games I have ever see.

I feel very lucky to be one of the few Cornell fans to have watched that game live.

That 6-point comeback in the last 25 seconds at Harvard in 2008 is the first time I noticed, "Hmmm. . . I don't think Tommy Amaker is a very good game-day coach." Little did I know then that he could more than make up for it through recruiting.

Speaking of recruiting, what's up with Cornell's alleged "game-changing" targets? I assume that they've committed elsewhere, given the complete radio silence?

Nope. Still on the board. If committed elsewhere, would've said something.

Could be a long process, so you need patience.

Remember, Harvard had to pursue Zena all the way through the spring of his senior year.

That may be the case here.

Cornell is battling in some cases for kids that have half of an entire BCS league offering them.

Harvard had to persue Zena through his senior year because he was on the fence to qualify - and didn't. If he qualified, he would have been off the board early.

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Not the case because he is still not qualified. He enrolled in postgrad in order to get himself qualified.
