Ivy League college basketball begins to heat up with the Columbia Lions hosting the Cornell Big Red.

The Cornell Big Red are eyeing back to back wins against Colombia after a 60-59 decision a week ago as a two point home favorite. 

Cornell led by 14 points at the halfway point and barely withstood the Lions second half comeback behind 45.7% marksmanship.

Joel Davis kept the Big Red afloat with 21 points, five pulls and five helpers while Josh Warren added 14 points and ten rebounds.

The Columbia Lions look for revenge after dropping a one point decision at Cornell last Saturday that prevented a three game winning streak.

Columbia lost this in the first half where a 39-25 deficit stared them in the face while 19 Cornell turnovers gave the 40% shooting offense 13 more looks.

Gabe Stefanini gave the Lions a chance with 18 points and six boards along with six TO followed by a ten point effort by Quinton Adlesh.

Maka Ellis gave Columbia nine points and  three  yanks  followed by Ike Nweke who contributed six points and six rebounds.

Cornell Big Red are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Ivy League and  are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall andare 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. Columbia Lions are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall and are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and  are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. Under is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in Columbia and Cornell Big Red are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Columbia.

It’s always tough to beat the same team two times in a row but I think Cornell can do it so give me the points…

Cornell +4

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
