Big Red Have Big Position to Fill

Staring with Andrew Naeve (6'10", class of '07) (far left), the Big Red have had four consecutive seasons of having a dominant big man inside the paint. Naeve, a 240 lb. presence inside, was a '06-'07 Second Team All Ivy League selection.

With the arrival of Jeff Foote (7'0", class of '10) (second from left), Cornell had a 2nd Team All Ivy League selection for the '07-'08 and '08-'09 seasons. Foote also was named 1st Team All Ivy League during '09-'10 and was the conference Defensive Player of the Year during 2009 and 2010.

For the 2010-2011 season, Cornell looks to former role playing veterans to step up as key post players. They are 6'9" Mark Coury (second from right, No. 42), a former Kentucky transfer and 6'9" Aaron Osgood (far right). Both seniors, Coury and Osgood must fill a huge void left by the graduated Foote.

Cornell is also making the recruitment of post players its biggest priority for the high school classes of 2011 and 2012.

A real fan can't forget that Jason Hartford was a key Red big man during the current run.

Looking back a bit in the Donahue years, Eric Taylor was a significant force in the league as an upperclassman.
