After a pair of losses on the road last weekend, the Red returned to its home court for bouts with Princeton and Penn, two teams in the middle of the Ivy League standings.

The first matchup of the team’s final weekend of the season was against the Tigers, who came to Ithaca with a 5-6 conference record. However, the Tigers broke out of the locker room with energy, silencing the crowd at Newman Arena by connecting on six three-pointers just five minutes into the game, making the score 25-0 before the Red made its first shot.
