News and Notes: Monday Edition

Some news and notes for Monday...
  • This will be a very busy week for Cornell basketball in terms of recruiting. First, the Big Red could be receiving additional verbal commitments after picking up a commitment from Shonn Miller of Cleveland, Ohio last night. A few of the program's other top targets are "on the verge" of pulling the trigger on their announcements. Cornell is also expecting additional recruiting prospects as visitors to campus this weekend for homecoming.
  • It is not just high school seniors on the recruiting radar. Cornell is still heavily involved with transfers and is expecting one such visitor later this month.
  • While Cornell is actively recruiting players in all position areas, the low post positions remain the program's highest priorities. Cornell will likely bring in several big players next season.
  • As we previously reported, Cornell assistant coach, Jay Larranaga is taking a coaching position with the NBA D-League's Erie Bayhawks. A veteran of Europe's professional leagues for over ten seasons, Coach Larranaga has aspired to coach professional basketball in the United States. A national search by Cornell is underway to find a replacement. The new coach will be Cornell's No. 2 assistant with Marlon Sears remaining as the No. 1 assistant and Ricky Yahn as the No. 3.
  • Cornell Athletics has updated the 2010-2011 roster and the changes reflect adjusted heights and weights for the players. Below are the changes from 2009-2010:
-Chris Wroblewski (+5 pounds to 180 lbs.)
-Max Groebe (+5 pounds to 205 lbs.)
-Peter McMillan (-20 pounds to 200 lbs..)
-Jonathan Gray (+10 pounds to 185 lbs.)
-Adam Wire (+13 pounds to 235 lbs.)
-Josh Figini (+5 pounds to 205 lbs.)
-Mark Coury (-10 pounds down to 230 lbs.)
-Eitan Chemerinski (+10 pounds to 205 lbs.)
-Anthony Gatlin (+25 pounds to 205 lbs.)

according to the roster, P-mac lost 20 pounds. went from 220 last year to 200 this year. That can't be right can it?

Nice to see Gat putting on the pounds.

Wire was already big last year. He's gonna be tough to move this year.

I'll bet it's all muscle, too. I think Adam Wire wants to start at the 4.

We've got some great options in the frontcourt.
