For the second time in one week, the men’s basketball team will get a chance at ruining a perfect season when it faces Minnesota tomorrow at Williams Arena, also known as “The Barn.”
The Red will look to hand the Gophers their first loss of the season after falling short against undefeated Syracuse, 88-78.
Cornell is led by as many as 16 points during the first half but collapsed in the second half as the Orange shot 75 percent from the field to retake the lead.
“We all just want to come out with a little more toughness and just finish games,” said junior forward Alex Tyler. “We’ve had games with opportunities to put teams away and we haven’t been able to do that. We want to get over that hump and actually win a couple of those games.”
