News and Notes: Thursday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Thursday...

  • The Cornell Basketball Prospect Camp for elite high school players considering playing at Cornell is scheduled for this weekend, June 23-24. Cornell coaches direct the camp while several veteran Big Red players serve as counselors.
  • The New York Post writes, "[Marshon] Brooks wasn’t the only Nets Summer League participant playing in last night’s game [in the Nike Pro City Summer League in New York City], as center Jeff Foote, who played for the Springfield Armor for much of last season – and also got a brief NBA call-up with the New Orleans Hornets – also was on his team. Foote, a Cornell product, impressed the Armor’s coaching staff this past season in Springfield, where he averaged 15.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game while shooting 55 percent from the field in 38 games. Given the lack of size on the Nets roster at the moment – with [Jordan] Williams and center Johan Petro as the only big men currently under contract – it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see the Nets give a legitimate 7-footer like Foote a shot at making the team in training camp."

Foote looks REALLY good here. He's making shots, grabbing rebounds, and fighting for loose balls. If he keeps this up, he might have a ligitimate shot at making the Nets' roster this fall.

For those of you who haven't checked out the video, do it. You won't be disappointed.
