In the announcement for tonight's Red & White scrimmage, there is a note stating that Tuesday night's game against Ithaca College is an exhibition.

The Big Red beat IC 98-61 last night. Unfortunately, there is no available box score and it does not appear that the game is/was available on ESPN+.

https://cornellbigred.com/news/2018/10/30/mens- bas...

- Matt Morgan scored a game-high 22 points and added three rebounds, three assists and three steals for the home team, while Jimmy Boeheim (16 points, five rebounds) and Jake Kuhn (11 points, five rebounds) were also in double figures. In all, 15 different Cornell players scored and the bench tallied 59 points on the night.

Jack Gordon had nine points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals and Josh Warren notched eight points for a Big Red team that had 21 assists. Steven Julian recorded a team-best six boards. -

Here is a little bit more on the exhibition against Ithaca College, as well as something on the Red & White Scrimmage.

"Earl kept a relatively tight eight-man rotation until about 12 minutes left in the second half when junior college transfer Chaz Mack entered the game."

The article didn't mention the eight names, but I'm guessing: Morgan, McBride, Whiteside, Julian, Boeheim, Gordon, Warren and Kuhn. Curious if Mack can turn that into a nine-man rotation over the first month of the season.

I would agree with you on that.

The one and two guards would be Morgan, McBride, Whiteside and Gordon with Davis available.

Having Boeheim on the wing is probably better than having him playing down low. With his height, he could be a benefit at guarding against the three. Kuhn would be a good backup.

That would leave Julian and Warren to start at the forward spots with Mack, McCarty or Voss. If necessary, Boeheim can play there.

Thinking about that rotation....

The backcourt is solid: Matt is one of the best players in the league; McBride could break out if gets a bit more aggressive with his offense, at worst he is a fine pass-first PG; if healthy, Whiteside is a solid all-around player; Gordon can help if he is shooting well from outside; and Davis can give you a few minutes of good D a night. That's a workable rotation, if only because Morgan is special.

But that frontcourt is thin. Julian is a solid and efficient forward, but after that it gets dicey. Warren is probably best suited to be a rotation guy who spells the starter. As you said, Boeheim is probably better suited as a wing -- regardless he needs to shoot better than 44% from 2pt and 13% (!) from 3pt. Kuhn has some potential, but he struck me as more big shooting guard than true forward when I saw him last year. The team really needs one of the JUCO forwards (or Dickson, but my guess is that he is too raw to help this season) to step up the way Julian did last year.
