News and Notes: Thursday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Thursday...
  • Jeff Foote (Cornell '10) and his Zalgiris team of Lithuania face Emporio Armani Milano of Italy today in the EuroLeague.
7. Shonn Miller, Cornell - Miller won rookie of the year honors in the Ivy League last season, and a lot of that was based on how much he was asked to do for the Big Red out of the gate. Miller isn't a great shooter, but according to coach Bill Courtney, he is working on it. His biggest talent comes on the defensive side of the ball where he turned in a 19.5 DEF100 score, among the best marks in the league. That is a strong number for any player, let alone a freshman. Plus his 2.2 HW30 made him an easy choice for this list. The Big Red will go as far as Miller can take them -- he is the only positive value player returning for Cornell this season. It remains to be seen what that exactly means given the loss of Chris Wroblewski at guard. Miller's talent though shouldn't be denied.

Penn with a very nice pickup in Matt Howard. Harvard also in the hunt with some big names, as usual. But Harvard really needs a good point guard in this class to round out their program. Without that, they'll have a bunch of bouncy 3s and 4s, but almost nothing at the 1.

Any plans to update the recruiting tab to include the new commits and recruiting targets?
