The Cornell Big Red visit the Bob Carpenter Center to oppose the Delaware Blue Hens in a Wednesday college basketball tilt.

The Cornell Big Red have a few good performances mixed in with a few bad and the result is a 5-5 record capped off by an 89-86 loss to the Niagara Purple Eagles as a 1.5 point underdog on Saturday. Both teams sank shots at around 44% with Cornell hurting themselves with an 8-29 effort from beyond the arc.

The Big Red offense was a two man game with Matt Morgan leading all scorers with 33 points, six boards and four assists on 11-22 from the floor including a 6-14 mark on threes. Stone Gettings gave Cornell another 30 points, eleven rebounds and five assists on 12-20 shooting while Jack Gordon chipped in with seven points and ten boards. 

The Delaware Blue Hens are looking for improvement over 2016-17 and the team has looked better but only time will determine how much better. Delaware has won back to back contests after upending the Cal. State-Bakersfield Roadrunners 76-62. The Blue Hens  were up eleven at the intermission with a 44%-4% shooting edge and seven more makes at the line being the difference.

The Blue Hens leaned on a few players for the bulk of their production with Kevin Anderson leading  the way with 22 points, six pulls, three assists and two blocks on 7-11 from the floor. Ryan Daly added 20 points nine boards and five helpers while Eric Carter scored 15 points and hauled in ten rebounds on 4-6 from the floor.

Cornell are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS loss and Cornell are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Colonial Athletic Association and Cornell are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. Delaware are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and Delaware are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.

I’m a Delaware fan and just want a win but I think this will be competitive and that means the points are valuable…

Pick:
Cornell +6

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.
