News and Notes: Tuesday Edition

Below, news and notes for Tuesday...

  • An ACC preview writes of Boston College, "The underwhelming hire of Jim Christian, who for all intent and purpose looks like a step down from Steve Donahue (remember how good he was at Cornell?)"
  • DMV Elite updates its profiles of D.C. area college commitments, including Cornell freshman, Jordan Abdur Ra'off.
  • Bleacher Report writes of Notre Dame's Jerian Grant, "He averaged 18 points and 7.7 assists against a trio of Big Ten opponents (Iowa, Indiana and Ohio State), but most of his best games did come against patsies like Miami (Ohio), Army and Cornell."

The picture of the Cornell Dartmouth program of Jan. 1962 brings back a special memory. That was the first Cornell game I saw at Barton Hall as a freshman. Cornell won easily, I believe 72-48, led by all-Ivy forward Bill Baugh. Dartmouth had a fine guard in Steve Spahn. That game was the beginning of a love affair with Big Red basketball that still lives on.
