News and Notes: Weekend Edition

Below, some news and notes for the weekend...
  • Seton Hall officially released its 2010-2011 scheduling confirming that Cornell will meet the Pirates in the Prudential Center (home of the New Jersey Nets) on Seton Hall's home opener on Sunday, November 14. New Jersey Hoops Haven writes about the Hall's "cream puffs" on the Pirates' schedule and notes, "Cornell should be way down after losing just about everyone plus the coach."
  • Speaking of coaches, several sources confirmed for The Cornell Basketball Blog that Cornell now has an assistant coaching vacancy. Assistant Jay Larranaga has left his post to take a position in the NBA D-League.
  • Maccabi Tel Aviv announced that Jeff Foote ('10) will wear No. 14 for the frachise.
  • It was a rough weekend for Gottingen and Louis Dale ('10) in the Brose Tournament with the Violets losing both of their exhibition games, finishing fourth in the four team field. Dale scored 3 points in the semifinal loss to host Brose and finished with 6 points against Perlas Vilnius (Lithuania) in the consolation game. Below, video highlights of Dale from his 18 point performance vs. Bayreuth last week. Penn fans can look for glimpses of Penn alum, Koko Archibong who plays with Bayreuth.



  • Ryan Wittman ('10) scored 8 points (4/8 FGs) for Fulgor Libertas Forli in an exhibition loss to Italian 2nd Division league rival, Aget Imola on Sunday.

oh and the heights/weights have been updated. Wire is the heaviest guy on the team? Absurd.

Big Fruit Figini and Rubiks Cube Chemerinski gained a combined 15 lbs...

Yeah, that's a surprise. Perhaps he didn't like the relative isolation of Ithaca?

Who is Shonn Miller?

Interesting: roster says Coury has lost 10 pounds and Gatlin has gained 25 pounds. They totally look it too, compared to old UK & Centenary pics.

Shonn Miller better not end up at Brown.

Oh and Dom Scelfo HAS cut his hair. He looks good.

If we did in fact land Shonn Miller, looks like a solid get:

The titles and dates and links fonts should be in white instead of black to give a better contrast.

Still nothing like the kids Harvard's getting. Already a commitment from Travis (90 on ESPN) and Kenyatta Smith (#13 center in the country on Scout). They're not even recruiting in the same class of talent as the rest of the Ivy, which is scary. They could dominate this league for a LONG time, as long as Amaker and his recruiting prowess is there at least.

the good part is that you dont win games based on a kid Scout.com or ESPN rating. Cornell got to the Sweet 16 with a bunch of guys who no one was recruiting

Harvard had Lin, the guy is in the NBA now and they still won nothing

Plus if you buy into the ratings, good for Courtney to get a guy like Shonn Miller after only being here for a few months, Amaker has been there for a few years now, he was not getting these guys on day 1

The Cornell Basketball Blog said...

Don't pay attention to the ratings. Look at the schools that made offers.

Respect the coaches' opinions, not the bloggers and the writers.

When you get down to it, Miller's scholarship offers were very impressive.

He'd be in the BCS if he went to prep school. Major coup for Cornell. Could be best wing in the Ivy in 2 years.

Miller is no doubt an All Ivy League talent as are Kenyatta Smith and Jonah Travis.

You can't pick on any of these guys. They are all studs.

It seems like there are never any updates on Sahota. Is he still on the team?

Sahota is on the team.
