Miller Named Ivy Rookie of the Year; Wroblewski, Gray Also Honored

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Cornell freshman Shonn Miller has been named the 2012 Ivy League Rookie of the Year and senior Chris Wroblewski, the 2009 conference rookie of the year, closed his career with a first-team all-league nod when the All-Ivy League teams were announced on Wednesday afternoon. Additionally, junior Johnathan Gray was named honorable mention All-Ivy.

The All-Ivy League team is selected by a vote of the conference's eight head coaches.

"I'm excited for Shonn, Chris and Johnathan for being recognized for their performances this season," said Bill Courtney, the Robert E. Gallagher '44 Head Coach of Cornell Basketball. "For Shonn, he had a good rookie season and I expect this will provide him even more motivation to work on his game during the offseason. Chris was our steady leader, and his play in conference games made him more than deserving of being named first-team all-conference. Johnathan really emerged in Ivy play as one of the conference's elite athletes and ranked among the conference scorers. His story is one of perseverance and dedication, and we're fortunate to have both him and Shonn back next year as we continue our climb up the Ivy League standings."

Miller, who becomes the seventh Cornellian to take home Ivy League Rookie of the Year honors and the third in the last seven years, established new Cornell freshman records for rebounds (170) and blocked shots (46) while taking home the conference's Rookie of the Week honor five times. He also ranked among the top 10 freshman scorers in school history with 250 points. The 6-7 freshman ranked eighth in the Ivy League in rebounding and steals and was second in blocks.

Miller ended the season averaging 8.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 steals per game while starting in 21 of the team's 28 contests. He shot 44 percent from the floor, including 51 percent from inside the 3-point arc. Miller had three double-doubles, five double digit rebounding games and nine contests in double figure scoring.

Wroblewski, a three-time All-Ivy selection and two-time Capital One Academic All-American, graduates as the school's all-time career leader in assists (482) and a 1,000-point scorer (1,202 points - 13th all-time). A two-year captain, Wroblewski is a three-year starter who played on a pair of Ivy League championship teams, including the 2009-10 squad that advanced to the Sweet 16.

Wroblewski ended his career ranked fourth in career 3-point field goals made (189), fifth in 3-point percentage (.414), ninth in free-throw percentage (.823), ninth in steals (139) and 10th in free throws made (279). His 119 games played ranked second all-time among Cornellians, and his 3,594 minutes played sits third.

As a senior, Wroblewski led the team in scoring (11.5 ppg.) and was third in the Ivy League in assists (5.3 apg.) and second in steals (1.6 spg.). He was twice been named Ivy League Player of the Week during his career, including once as a senior. Wroblewski became just the second player in Cornell history to surpass 1,000 points, 400 assists, 300 rebounds and 100 steals, joining All-American and Ivy Player of the Year Louis Dale, his former backcourt mate.

Gray was the conference's sixth-leading scorer in Ivy League games (12.3 ppg.) and for the season posted 8.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 0.8 steals per game. He started 17 of the team's 28 games. Gray, a former walk-on, hit for double figures 12 times with two 20-point games, including a career-high 29 points in a win over Yale. He also scored 20 points in a victory over Dartmouth. He recorded 18 points against Patriot League regular season champion Bucknell and had 14 points against Ivy champion Harvard.

The Big Red improved on its 2010-11 win totals both overall and in conference play this past season, ending the year 12-16 (7-7 Ivy League) in the second year under Courtney. Cornell will return three starters and 10 letter winners next season.
