Men’s basketball 83, Penn 59

Cornell clinched its second straight Ivy title and the accompanying berth to the NCAA tournament with a dominant 83-59 win over Penn on Friday night. The Red’s win coupled with Princeton’s 58-44 loss to Columbia handed Cornell the title.
Junior Ryan Wittman had a game-high 25 points, largely on his 6-of-10 performance from behind the arc. The game was back-and-forth in the first half but the Cornell defense played hard and the team pulled away for the win.
