The Cornell men’s basketball team had a busy weekend, hoping to record its first Ivy win. After losing to Columbia twice last weekend, the Red took on two other conference rivals, Brown and Yale.

On Friday evening, the Red traveled to Providence to take on the Bears, who were led by the Ivy League’s leading scorer Sean McGonagill. The Red got off to a slow start against the 9-7 Bears. However, by the end of the half Cornell led by three points, 33-30.

Sophomore guard Nolan Cressler had a strong first half, scoring 13 points on nine shot attempts. Junior guard Devin Cherry also had a productive first twenty minutes with seven points and three rebounds.
