Ivy Awards: Week 1, Miller and Hatter Honored




The Ivy League announced the following weekly awards:
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Cornell senior forward Shonn Miller (Euclid, Ohio) showed exactly what the Big Red had been missing in splitting a season-opening road trip after missing the 2013-14 season. Miller averaged 20.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocked shots, 1.0 steals and 1.0 assists in a pair of starts. He shot 41 percent from the floor, 46 percent from three-point range and 80 percent from the free-throw line. He had a monster contest in the win over George Mason in his first game in nearly a year and a half, scoring 21 points, including connecting on a career-high four threes, to go along with 13 rebounds and two blocks. Miller scored the team’s final 11 points to close out the decisive first half to help Cornell match its win total against Division I schools in his absence. In a five-point loss to Loyola (Md.), he scored 20 points, grabbed nine rebounds, blocked two shots, stole two passes and dished two assists.

The first-week honors show already how and why this team is considerably improved. Miller and Cancer lent experience and poise to the team effort. The ball flowed better. The defensive effort against Mason was particularly impressive. The potential for consistently sharp outside shooting is there.
