Cornell vs. Yale Prediction

I’m on Yale in this one. I just trust Yale in this spot a lot more than I do the Big Red, because Yale has plenty of big game experience. Cornell has issues on the defensive glass and they give up a ton of free throws and in a tight game like this, those shots at the charity stripe could prove to be the difference. I’ll side with Yale but there’s much better options on the board.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
