- Cornell Athletics published the Game Notes for the Big Red's visit to Georgia Tech.
- The Daily Pennsylvanian profiles Steve Donahue and writes in part:
Donahue inherited a Cornell program with almost nothing going for it, and he was not able to turn it around overnight. Far from it.In his first four seasons with the Big Red, Donahue failed to lead his team into the top half of the Ivy League. He knew that if he wanted to achieve the kind of success he did at Penn, he’d have some growing up to do.And grow up he did, adopting a more measured coaching style as he gained experience and perspective.“I thought coaching was one thing, and it’s totally another,” Donahue said. “I was way out of control, and my emotions were to the point that it was detrimental to my coaching.”And with it came the success he was looking for. In his last three years with the program, Cornell won three consecutive Ivy titles, including an unbelievable Sweet 16 run in the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
