The Princeton Tigers and the Cornell Big Red meet in college basketball action from Newman Arena on Saturday. 

This game was originally scheduled for Friday evening, but was pushed back due to weather. 

Princeton comes in here at 9-8 so far. the Tigers are riding a six-game win streak right now, taking out Lehigh, Penn (twice), Rutgers-Camden, Dartmouth and Harvard during that time.

In the win over the Crimson, Princeton’s lead scorer was Ethan Wright with 15 points, four rebounds and one assist. Both Ryan Schwieger and Jerome Desrosiers scored 11 points apiece with a combined five rebounds and four assists. 

Over on the Cornell side, they’re 4-13 this year. The Big Red are 1-3 in their last four games, beating Columbia while otherwise dropping to Columbia, Brown and Yale in that stretch. 

In the loss to the Bulldogs, Cornell’s Jimmy Boeheim had 17 points with four rebounds and four assists. Josh Warren had 14 points with three rebounds and two assists there, and Dean Noll had 13 points with four assists and three rebounds in that one. 

Cornell is 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and 17-41-1 ATS in their last 59 after an ATS win. The Red are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 overall and the over is 5-1 in their last six overall. 

Meanwhile, the Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last five Friday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win. Princeton is 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 5-0 ATS in their last five overall. 

Princeton put up a nice effort against a pretty good Harvard team in their last outing, withstanding a second-half push by the Crimson. That’s been the closest result so far in the Tigers’ win streak, and they’ve been pretty well in control for most of that time. 

As for Cornell, they’ve been pretty choppy lately, posting 63 or fewer points in three of their last four games. This should be a pretty interesting matchup, but I still like Princeton to keep it going and bang out a cover.
