Cornell is also averaging 34.6 rebounds per game and 11.5 assists per game. Robert Hatter leads Cornell in scoring but hasn’t played in the teams last few games and is questionable for this game.

Cornell is shooting 63.7% on free throws, 33.6% on three-pointers, and 42.6% on all field goal attempts.
Cornell is 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games. Cornell is 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 road games. The under is 4-1 in Cornell’s last 5 road games.

The over is 8-1 in these two teams last 9 meetings.
With both teams playing last night, fatigue could become a factor in this one. Cornell has struggled on defense, as they are giving up about 77 points per game. Dartmouth plays better defense and has the rebounding advantage in this game. I like Dartmouth at home.
