Cornell Basketball Ready For New Era with New Head Coach

Local Sports

In 2010, Cornell men’s basketball stood on top of the world. The Big Red made the Sweet 16 and repeated as IVY League Champs. In 2016, they have a new coach leading the new era. 

Brian Earl takes over in his first season at the helm for The Big Red. Earl, a longtime assistant at Princeton, replaces Bill Courtney who was let go after last season’s (10-18) finish. Now with a new identity, Cornell is looking to get back to prominence this season. 

Cornell opens up at Binghamton University November 11th at 7 P.M. The Big Red also has plenty of top-tier teams on this year’s schedule. Their annual date with Syracuse is December 27th, which follows a big holiday tournament in the Las Vegas Invitational.

18 Sports spoke with Earl about what he expects from the team in the early stages of practice and beyond. For a complete schedule for the Cornell men’s basketball team click on this link: http://cornellbigred.com/schedule.aspx?schedule=1049&path=mbball
