What to Know
The Cornell Big Red will be returning home after a two-game road trip. The Big Red and the Dartmouth Big Green will face off in an Ivy battle at 2 p.m. ET Sunday at Newman Arena at Bartels Hall. Cornell is out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.
Cornell’s 2021 ended with an 80-68 loss against the Syracuse Orange this past Wednesday. A silver lining for Cornell was the play of forward Keller Boothby, who shot 6-for-11 from beyond the arc and finished with 20 points.
Dartmouth lost a heartbreaker to the Cal State Bakersfield Roadrunners when they met in January of 2017, and they left with a heavy heart again two weeks ago. Dartmouth fell just short of Cal State Bakersfield by a score of 61-57.
The Big Red are the favorite in this one, with an expected 5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
The losses put Cornell at 8-3 and Dartmouth at a reciprocal 3-8. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Cornell enters the contest with a 48.20% field goal percentage, good for 30th best in college basketball. Less enviably, Dartmouth has allowed their opponents to shoot 45.20% from the floor on average, which is the 49th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against the Big Green.
