College Hoops Picks ATS—Feb. 20: Cornell Big Red at Yale Bulldogs

Ryan BrennanSenior Analyst IFebruary 20, 2009

Cornell Big Red (7-1, 17-7) at Yale Bulldogs (4-4, 9-13)

Friday, Feb. 20—7:00 PM EST


Preview

After losing to Princeton at the beginning of February and giving up their top spot in the Ivies for a week, the Big Red (7-1, 17-7) have won three in a row. These wins haven't come easily (they have managed to win by an average of 13 points, though). Cornell is looking to repeat the Ivy title, and it seems that they are well on their way to achieving that goal (they are also the only Ivy team who, at this point, can muster up more than 20 wins this season).

Yale is currently tied for fifth in the Ivies and has traded wins and losses for their last two weekends (wins over Harvard and Princeton and losses to Dartmouth and Pennsylvania).

The last time these two teams faced off, Cornell walked away with a 28-point victory.
