News and Notes: Monday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Monday...

 Above, photos from last week's Nike Pro City Summer League Championship Game.  Left, Louis Dale (Cornell '10) drives past Sundiata Gaines who played with the Brooklyn Nets last season.  Right, Jeff Foote (Cornell '10) shoots over former Tennessee Volunteer, 6'10" Brian Williams.
  • The Bleacher Report analyzed Team USA and writes that opponents should allow them to shoot three-pointers.  Referencing the 2010 Sweet Sixteen, the Bleacher Report writes, "It would be like Kentucky starting to jack up threes like Cornell in the NCAA tournament."
  • Cornell 2012-2013 opponent, the Arizona State Sun Devils, are ranked #103 in Sports Bank's daily ranking of the nation's top 111 teams.  Also ranked, Boston College is #101 and the Sports Bank writes with respect to the Eagles, "[Steve] Donahue must get his players to truly buy into the team concept which is what made his Cornell clubs so successful."
  • Jeff Aubry (Cornell '99) just keeps on going.  He is ready to return for another professional season in Mexico with the Halcones Rojos of the LNBP. Aubry, a 6'11" center, splits his time in both the Mexican and Puerto Rican professional leagues, in the latter with the Arecibo Capitanes. A well traveled professional player, Aubry spent several seasons in the NBA D League in the early part of his career with the Fayetteville Patriots and Florida Flame and earned honorable mention All D-League in 2002. During his more than a decade of pro experience, Aubry has played professionally in the ABA (Miami Tropics), Puerto Rico (Arecibo, Leones de Ponce, and Santurce, BSN Puerto Rico), Spain (Tarragona, LEB Gold Spain 2nd Division), Mexico (Halcones Rojos and Chihuahua Dorados, LNBP Mexico premier league), Poland (Slask Wroclaw, PLK Poland premier league), Argentina (Libertad Sunchales, Liga A Argentina), Uruguay (Hebraica, LUB Uruguay) and Peru (Alas Peruanas, Peru).

Peck injured again? No summer videos. Not recovering as expected or as hoped for? We can handle it, just let us know now.
