News and Notes: Monday Edition

Below, news and notes for Monday...

(Many fans of Cornell consider the 2010 Sweet Sixteen and No. 17 Final National Ranking to be the sweetest moment in Cornell Basketball's rich history)
  • Ivy Hoops Online contributor, Jake Mastbaum, is counting down his Top 10 moments in Cornell Basketball history.  Here is his list to date:
 (Steve Cram)
  • The Del-Co News remembers its 1966 All Delaware County team and writes, "Steve Cram, another Upper Darby product, averaged 19.7 points per game for Cornell University and earned a place on the All-Ivy League second team.  Cram, who was a 6-7 senior, also led his team in rebounds."
 (Josh Warren)
    •  In case you missed it, Jerry Ben (New Haven HS)  New Haven, MI, 6-9, C was the first to commit to Cornell's high school Class of 2016 recruiting haul.  Last week, Josh Warren (Downington West HS) Downington, PA, 6-9, F, committed to Cornell and joined the class.  See Warren;s profile on Verbal Commits and the story on his commitment in City of Basketball Love (COBL).  As a junior, Warren was the Ches-Mont League Player of the Year by the Philadelphia Inquirer.  His Downington West teammate, Ryan Betley is committed to Ivy rival and Steve Donahue-coached UPenn and also made the First Team.  Warren posted 17.5 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks per game as a junior.  He had scholarship offers from a host of Division II schools during the summer, including West Chester, Pace, East Stroudsburg, and Philadelphia University, but then in September the Division I interest picked up with a scholarship offer from St. Francis (PA), an offer from Cornell, and interest from Delaware State (which invited him to visit campus).  COBL describes him as, "A 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward, Warren is a mobile big man who can face up or play with his back to the basket, with a jump shout out to 15 feet and a reliable right hand hook."
