Brown Bears Rundown

Brown moved to 8-17 after defeating Columbia in NYC by two, 66-64. The Bears held the Lions off down the stretch, and they’ll face an uphill battle this weekend in Upstate NY. Brown is scoring 69.7 points per game, on 42.0% shooting, while allowing 82.3 ppg, and they’re currently 6th in the Ivy League with a 4-6 record in conference play.

Brown’s X-Factors

  • Junior guard Kino Lilly Jr. managed to go for a game-high 24 points in the loss to Columbia,  and he leads Brown in scoring (19.0).

Cornell Big Red Rundown

Cornell improved to 20-4 after defeating Yale at home by three, 65-62. The Big Red managed to hold off a fierce rally from the Bulldogs, and they’ll look to bring the brooms out here on the Bears. Cornell is scoring 83.6 points per game, on 49.8% shooting, while allowing 78.4 ppg, and they’re currently first in the Ivy League with a 9-1 record in conference play. 

Cornell’s X-Factors 

  • Veteran guard Chris Manon came thru with a game-high 25 points in the Dartmouth victory,  and he leads Cornell in scoring (12.7), while grabbing 4.1 rpg.
  • Third-year guard Nazir Williams scored 17 points in the February 10th loss to Yale, and he’s second on the team at 11.1 ppg. 
  • Junior forward Guy Ragland Jr. leads the Big Red in rebounding (5.1), while scoring 9.1 ppg.  

Brown vs Cornell Trends

  • BRO is 11-12 against the spread, with a 12-11 over/under record
  • The Bears are 9-1 over their last ten games, and they’re 3-8 on the road this season. 
  • COR is 10-12 against the spread, with a 13-9 O/U record
  • The Big Red are 9-1 over their previous ten games, and they’re 10-0 in Ithaca this season. 

Brown vs Cornell Prediction

Cornell edged out Yale in a contested battle last night, but this contest should come with a lot less sweat, as Brown has struggled prior to a recent two-game stretch. The Raiders will face less of a challenge here from the Bears, but with the double digit margin feeling a bit large, I like leaning on a noticeable trend. The second leg of Cornell’s first two back-to-backs have resulted in higher scoring matchups, so I like backing the Over for this Ivy League matchup.
