The Red looks to salvage its season with a pair of road wins against Yale and Brown in its final weekend.

Men’s Basketball Hits the Road to Close Out 2016-17 Season

Following losses to Penn and Princeton and ending its opportunities at a postseason run, Cornell men’s basketball travels to New Haven on Friday and Providence on Saturday hoping to salvage wins in its final games of the 2016-17 season. Cornell (7-20, 3-9 Ivy) starts the weekend series against a talented Yale team (15-10, 7-5) that came back to defeat the Red, 81-70, in its last outing at Newman Arena. That game Yale returned from a seven-point deficit in the first half and fended off the Red late in the second to overtake Cornell

Although Yale’s 46 percent seasonal field goal percentage currently leads the Ivy League, sophomore forward Stone Gettings hopes to turn the tides this go around and make an even bigger statistical impact as the Red takes on the Bulldogs for a second time. “I’m sure for Yale it will kind of be the same situation — they might double me this time,” Gettings said. In his last performance against the Bulldogs, Gettings knocked down 28 points, had four steals and collected eight rebounds.
