News and Notes: Friday Edition

  • From Wednesday night's game, the Post Standard writes, "Cornell guard Robert Hatter, who shot 1-for-8 on 3-pointers, repeatedly launched bad shots as the shot-clock expired."
  • NBC Sports says David Onuorah was "posterized" at Syracuse.
  • Jim Boheim was asked about the job Syracuse did on Shonn Miller:
Did you do anything special on Shonn Miller?
“Not really. He wasn’t really aggressive in the first half. They didn’t really find him. I thought he got more aggressive in the second half. He’s a good player. We were aware of where he was for the most part and we wanted to do a better job in the high post. Last game (Long Beach) we did a very poor job in the high post area. We did a much, much better job of contesting the ball in the high post and I think that was really the key for us defensively today.”
  • Ivy Hoops Online writes of Cornell's New Year resolution, "Cornell (6-6)Be smarter with the basketball.  Cornell’s backcourt is as intriguing as it is maddeningly undisciplined, and that’s why the Big Red aren’t higher up in the power rankings. Senior guard Devin Cherry averages a ridiculous 4.6 turnovers per contest and fellow senior guard Galal Cancer is also known for not being very protective of the basketball. Cornell has lost even more close games than Dartmouth so far, committing a combined 47 turnovers in close losses to Penn State, Drexel and St. Peter’s."
