Foote ('10) to Spain

Breaking news regarding Cornell alum, Jeff Foote ('10) from
Maccabi Electra announced on Wednesday that it has agreed to send center Jeff Foote on loan to Spanish second division team Club Melilla Baloncesto. Foote signed a multi-year deal with Maccabi this summer after finishing his college basketball career at Cornell University, but did not fit into head coach David Blatt's plans this season. Instead he heads to Melilla for the rest of the season to gain experience before returning to Tel Aviv next season for the remainder of his contract. Foote did not play in the Euroleague this season and appeared in just one Israeli League game for 4 minutes earlier this week. Foote joins Elishay Kadir as players Maccabi has loaned out this week.

What matters is this: will Foote's new team continue to take pictures of him doing goofy stretches and calisthenics?

Best of luck in Spain, Jeff. You're missed here in Ithaca.
