It took three months for Cornell men’s basketball to win its first Division I game last year. This season, it took one night.

With last year’s 2-26 season firmly in the past, the Red were victorious over George Mason on opening night. In front of a crowd of 6,000 strong, Cornell (1-1) beat the Patriots (1-1), 68-60, in Fairfax, Virginia, on Friday, setting the tone for what will likely be a much improved season.
