News and Notes: Monday Edition

Below some news and notes for Monday...

  • On Shonn Miller's ranking by The Big Lead among the nation's Top 50 players, Penn alumnus, Jonathan Tannenwald writes for his blog on, "of note is the fact that Cornell's Shonn Miller is the only Ivy League player on the list at No. 50. I'm just a mainstream media writer, but I'm surprised that Miller got in ahead of Harvard's Kyle Casey."

  • On the NBA Summer League, Hoops World writes, "Brooklyn has also been grooming former Cornell center Jeff Foote. He’s on the Nets’ Summer League roster and was a member of their D-League team, the Springfield Armor. Foote has averaged 6.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 20.4 minutes per game. Most recently, Foote played 28 minutes against the Pacers Summer League team, grabbing 11 rebounds and scoring 11 points." See USA Today: Nets' coach, Avery Johnson mentioned that Jeff Foote could be in the mix for a final roster spot.
  • Below, from our regular series, A Date in Cornell Basketball History, an image of the official box score from a November 11, 2005 exhibition game when Jeff Foote played for St. Bonaventure against Bloomsburg University.  Foote never appeared in official game for the Bonnies, opting for a red-shirt during the 2005-2006 season.  Foote ultimately transferred to Cornell, sitting out the 2006-2007 season and the fall semester of the 2007-2008 season.  He played just 2.5 years of college basketball before embarking on his pro career.
