By listing Cherry, does that mean he will probably make the team?

Not suggesting he made the team. Just budgeting the roster to include him.

What a large roster. I wonder if someone will leave just like Hill did because they'll never see the court.

Penn, Columbia and Harvard have bigger crowding issues than Cornell.

Penn, Columbia and Cornell have bigger "crowding issues" than Harvard and Princeton. The latter two have smaller projected rosters (17) than and the former three. Is math a weakness with this blog?

Your math is off, not ours. Penn's roster projects at 22, Columbia at 20...

Yes, both Princeton and Hahvahd project at 17. I, too, don't see a problem there, other than Princeton's having to produce a point guard from the central NJ mist.

IMO, the "large" rosters at Penn and the New York schools are totally understandable. All three teams are riddled with question marks.

Penn has no [real] Class of 2013, plus five players hoping to come back off major injuries. You can bet two or three will not make it. They've also got four or five other roster guys who didn't sniff the court even in a year when the team had issues.

Somehow, the Lions' underclassmen failed to see significant court time last year, despite injuries to and underperformance by various starters. Aside from Agho, it is hard to tell who they've got and what they can really do. It's actually a great opportunity for Coach Smith.

And then there's Cornell. One view would be that the Big Red's main hope is for the guys who are going to be the mainstays this year to have become pretty good while practicing against the best Ivy team in a generation. Don't bet against some of that happening, but it's far from a sure thing. Four guys who have not seen significant action yet for Cornell are going to have to step up big to fill out that rotation. Unlike Penn and Columbia, Cornell is not plagued by past injury.

Don't forget... all three teams are also going through their first pre-season with a new head coach.

Cornell's 19 players includes three (3) non-recruited walk-ons, who were admitted to Cornell without going through the basketball program.

3 "nonrecruited walk-ons"? I see Gray & Cherry. Who's the third??

Okoye.
