Cornell Athletics

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Cornell freshman men's basketball player Shonn Miller has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for the fourth time this season after putting together a pair of outstanding efforts against Princeton and Penn in his first conference weekend. The 6-8 forward earned the weekly award each of the season's first three weeks.

Miller averaged 15.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 3.5 blocks and 1.0 steals in games against perennial Ivy League contenders Princeton and Penn. He shot .565 from the floor and didn't commit a turnover in 59 minutes of action.

Miller played a key role in Cornell's league-opening win over defending Ivy League champion Princeton, recoding 12 points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots in the 67-59 victory over the Tigers. He came back the following night with 19 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots in a loss to Penn for his second career double-double. It was also his fourth career contest with double figures in rebounding.

Miller and the Big Red will visit Columbia on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. at Levien Gymnasium.

Miller can play. Can only imagine what a Miller-Peck duo could bring. Speaking of Peck, is his injury career threatening? That would be a major bummer.
