If it wasn't official 12 months ago, it certainly is now. The rebuilding process at Cornell is over.

The Big Red placed outright second in the Ivy League last season. It was the program's highest finish since Cornell won its first and only Ivy League title in 1987-88. And with one more win, Donahue would've guided the program to its first winning season since 1996-97.

No matter, though, the 2004-05 season will forever be regarded as a huge success in the annals of Cornell hoops.
