love the first place prediction, but no way coury is a first teamer. More likely Peck

I think Coury, Peck, Groebe, and Ferry all have it in them to be first-team worthy if they play their best, and Gatlin too if what Jaques & Dale say about him is true.

It is getting tiresome to hear about the talent of the individuals that compose the 2010-11 Cornell basketball team, particularly those (in the majority) who have seen limited or no time on an Ivy League basketball court.

What made the Class of 2010 great was the way they played as a team. Face it, fans. We got the treat of a lifetime for the past four years! Cornell succeeding at the highest level in a major sport. Each player, including the rotation guys, knew exactly where their four colleagues were at every moment on the court. Each one took his turn at collecting floor burns. Top-tier coaches like Dunphy and Ryan (not to mention commentators like Bilas and Kellogg) said as much in their post-tournament comments.

We’re going to be seeing about six new faces in the 2010-11 lineup. The key to playing at a championship level is not how much individual talent our new team’s members have, but the way they mesh as a group. We’re not going to find out until the non-conference schedule how that is going to go.

I’d like to see us go a little easy on speculation about the individuals’ performances. It just doesn’t serve a good purpose to single out individuals when it is the teamwork that really will determine their success or failure.
