Cornell Wins Again; Undefeated Season on the Line Tonight

Cornell men's basketball visited and defeated Penn last night, 94-92, to remain unbeaten in the Ivy League, with one game to go, at Princeton tonight.

Cornell broke a string of 18 consecutive losses on Penn's home court.

Penn and Princeton are the perennial league powerhouses which, between them, have won every Ivy League championship in the past twenty years, a streak which ended when Cornell clinched the Ivy League title last week at home against Harvard.

Penn showed its strength by rallying from a 91-81 deficit in the last 33 seconds with an 11-2 run. They were unable to make a three-point attempt at the buzzer.
