Cornell wins by three on a ~30' triple by Wittman at the buzzer in OT, needed a Louis Dale layup with less than a second left to force the extra frame after Davidson rallied to negate the Big Red's 17 point second half lead.

A very, very entertaining game after the Wildcats pulled even. Lots of big plays and lead changes.

Davidson looked far better than I imagined they would given how they have played so far, will be curious to see how they match up with Penn after Christmas.

I was fortunate for find a (terrible) pirate feed of this game online and caught the last 7m of regulation and the overtime.

Cornell went cold shooting for good stretches. There was 8-0 Davidson run in the 2nd, as well as an opportunity on which Cornell failed to convert when Davidson whacked 3 consecutive rebounds out-of-bounds. There was also more sloppy play and unforced errors than you'd expectm considering the amount of media attention Cornell has received.

Granted, Davidson looked much better than their record indicates, but much like in their games against Bucknell and Drexel, Cornell sometimes struggles to beat teams that "lesser" squads, most notably Columbia in the case of the former, have thumped this year.

Cornell is definitely good, but I'm skeptical that they live up to the hype, and they'll need to play better and more consistently than they did today to win the League, especially against Harvard.

Of course, Princeton has its fair share of room for improvement as well.
