News and Notes: Thursday Edition

  • Schools which could end up as landing points for Errick Peck include (but are not limited to): Indiana, Butler, Purdue, Boston College, Creighton, Detroit, Duquesne, Evansville, Indiana State, Loyola-Chicago and North Texas.    Sports Illustrated's Andy Glockner writes of Peck on the transfer market, "A one-year option for teams looking for a decent rotation guy who can score and rebound a bit." Meanwhile, thinks Peck is a good fit for Indiana and writes:
Errick Peck, 6-6, Cornell – This is a vanity pick for me, as I love Errick Peck as a kid and player. The Indianapolis Cathedral product spent the last four years in the Ivy League, and scored 10 ppg over the last two seasons. He’s athletic, smart, and very coachable. He looked me in the eye and did what I said during the rec game in which I coached him. If that doesn’t make a kid coachable, I don’t know what does.
  • Jeff Foote (Cornell '10) and his Zalgiris team play game 2 of their semifinal playoff series against Neptunas in the Lithuanian LKL premier toight
