News and Notes for Sunday

Below, some news and notes for Sunday. Above, freshman point guard, Dominick Scelfo.
  • Louis Dale (Cornell '10) scored 5 points on Friday in an exhibition game in which his Gottingen club of Germany prevailed 74-59 over Chemnitz of Germany's A-League. Dale followed his performance with scoring 12 points in an 86-72 win over WBC Raiffeisen
  • (Austria Budesliga) on Saturday.
  • Jeff Aubry (Cornell '99) is averaging 10.7 points per game through the first three games with Halcones Rojos de Veracruz in the Mexican premier league (LNBP).
  • Steve Bilsky, the athletic director at Penn was interviewed by the school's Penn Gazette Blog. Here is one of his Q&A's, "Looking back on it, do you regret hiring Glen Miller over Steve Donahue? First of all, it wasn’t that simple – there were other people involved. I think you can always look back and say ‘What if’ but if you look at the records of Glen and Steve at that point, there was no comparison. I mean, Glen had accomplished so much more than Steve had. Steve’s an excellent coach, but Glen had taken a program that was really the poorest in the Ivy League and took it near the top and beat Penn a couple of times – and nobody else was doing that regularly back then – and had a great background. And he is a good coach. I really, truly hope and believe he’ll get another chance and do well. It just didn’t work here. I think it was a good decision that had a bad outcome."
  • We just came across the photo below of Alex Tyler (Cornell '10). As the saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words. Tyler gave his blood for Cornell basketball for four years. During '10-'11, who will fill his role of leadership and provide the same hustling and scrappy play?

welcome to the bench, Mr. Scelfo

I see the same play in Wire, but I don't see leadership yet. Perhaps as a senior we will see his leadership in more areas than "by example", which still has its place.

"Are you calling that foul on me?" I remember that play in the Yale game. His facial expression is classic AT. Great pic.

Scelfo....welcome to a great program. You will be a major player during your career. Don't listen to the nay-sayers. They are a dime a dozen.
