Assuming that Alex Tyler (6'7" 245 lbs. So.) gets the nod to start next year (after earning All-Freshman "High-Ceiling" Team honors during 2006-2007 from Ivybasketball.com), there is a wide open gap up for grabs at the other starting low post position. Brian Kreefer (6'7" 230 Jr.) is the most experienced power forward on the roster and arguably the favorite. However, a sleeper choice to emerge as a starter alongside Tyler is his classmate, Pete Reynolds (6'8" 220 lbs. So.)
Reynolds displayed quite a bit of potential in his first season for Cornell, averaging 1.4 points and 1.6 rebounds in 20 games, all off the bench, at 6.4 minutes per game. He shot a promising 69 percent from the floor (11/16) on the season. His best highlights came against Stony Brook, when he had 8 points and 6 rebounds in just 13 minutes going 4-of-5 on field goals. He also had 4 points (2/2 from the floor) and 2 rebounds in 15 minutes against Bucknell and 2 points, 4 rebounds and 1 block against Binghamton in 23 minutes.
A former football player and high jumper while inhigh school, Reynolds is a very good athlete. He moves well for a 6'8" post player and has a strong upper and lower body. Given more opportunity, Reynolds has all the tools to become extremely effective for the Big Red.
