News and Notes: Thursday Edition

Above, some photos of Cornell in Charleston via Cornell Athletics.  Below, news and notes...
  • Time Warner Cable has a video feature on Cornell's solid start to the season and notes, "The Cornell men's basketball team is enjoying an early-season resurgence after struggling to 26 losses in 28 games last season. The Big Red (2-1) are competing in the Charleston Classic in South Carolina this weekend."
  • On Cal, the Syracuse Post Standard writes, "The Cornell connection. Dwight Tarwater spent the last four years at Cornell, but he still had one year of athletic eligibility. However, the Ivy League does not allow graduates to play.  So Tarwater transferred to California to play his final year of college basketball.  Tarwater, a 6-foot-6 forward, started all 28 games for Cornell last season. A team captain, he averaged 7.1 points and a team-high 5.5 rebounds in 26.1 minutes per game.  Tarwater wound up at Cal through his Cornell connections. Cal hired former Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin last spring to replace the retired Mike Montgomery. Martin hired Yanni Hufnagel, an assistant at Vanderbilt, to be part of his new staff at Cal. Hufnagel had previously been an assistant at Cornell. In two games at Cal, Tarwater is averaging 10.5 points and 3.5 rebounds while coming off the bench. He's added experience to a young Cal bench."
  • Loyola picked up another win after beating Cornell, see the Baltimore Sun.
