News and Notes: Monday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Monday...

  • Here is one of the few public comments you will find on Cornell's closed door scrimmage at Army on Saturday.  A "little birdie" told The Cornell Basketball Blog that the two teams actually had several scrimmages with each team winning a few of the scrimmages.  Our source tells us that the outcome of scrimmages are completely insignificant but noted that both teams played extremely hard and physical.
  • Jeff Foote (Cornell '10) had 11 points and 7 rebounds in a starting role as his Zalgiris team, currently ranked No. 2 in Europe, remained unbeaten with a 90-62 win over Neputas in Russian VTB League action on Saturday.  In this link, there are some nice highlights of Zalgiris' first four games (4-0) in the Euroleague, including a highlight you probably have not seen of Jeff Foote around the 3:50 minute mark of the video.  On Sunday, Louis Dale (Cornell '10) finished with 6 points (1/5 FGs), 1 rebound, 1 steal, 1 assist, 1 turnover in 22 minutes as his KAOD team was crushed by Olimpiacos in Greek A1 action, 103-67.  Halcones defeated Victoria, 90-79 on Saturday in Mexico LNBP action, as Jeff Aubry (Cornell '99) had 2 points and 1 rebound off the bench.
