The Big Red got back into the win column against St. Francis-PA in their last outing. Cornell was up 47-32 at halftime and didn’t give much away from there in a 93-80 win. Nazir Williams led the way on 21 points, three assists and a steal. 

Over on the Canisius side, their year started out on an 0-4 skid. The Griffins lost the opener to Miami-FL 77-67, then fell to East Carolina 83-71, St. Bonaventure 69-60 and Cleveland State 80-70 before a win over Fredonia State 106-40. 

In game six the Griffins got another victory, this one courtesy of Coppin State. Canisius scored 44 points in the first half and hung on for the tight 76-75 win. Armon Harried topped the team with 22 points, five rebounds and two assists. 

The Griffins are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Monday games and 21-9-2 ATS in their last 32 as an underdog. The over is 9-4 in Canisius’ last 13 at home. 

Meanwhile, the Red are 4-1 ATS in their last five Monday games and 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. Cornell is 6-0 ATS in their last six overall. 

PICK: I’m going to stay with Cornell in this one. The Big Red have played well so far, and they’re coming off a nice performance in the St. Francis-PA game. Cornell shot 54.1 percent in that one, with 16-of-35 (45.7 percent) from 3-point range and 39 rebounds. 

As for Canisius, it’s been a rough run so far. The Griffins have a couple of victories in their pockets, but really had to struggle against Coppin State in the last game. If Cornell gets going here I don’t think the Griffins can cover.
