@SidekicksPicks CBB Play of the Day - 2/26

Yale (16-10) vs. Cornell (13-10)

The Yale Bulldogs travel to Ithaca, New York to take on the Cornell Big Red for a 2:00 pm tip. Yale is 16-10 overall, 6-5 on the road. They won their last game and are 8-1 in their last 9 games, 4 straight road wins. They recently lost to Princeton, which bumped them to 2nd place in the Ivy League. Both share the same 10-2 conference record and split head to head games. If Yale wants to win the conference, they need to win out!

Cornell is 13-10 overall, 9-2 at home. They are on a 3 game losing streak and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. They also have lost 2 of their last 3 home games. Cornell is 4th in the Ivy League with a 5-7 conference record.

Yale Analysis

Yale has been one of the best Ivy League schools this season and desperately needs this win. They are a pretty efficient offensive team, scoring 73 ppg. They balance that with a decent defense, allowing teams to score 69.4 ppg, shoot 42.2% from the floor and 31.2% from 3. The Bulldogs are great from the charity stripe, shooting 75.6%.

Cornell Analysis

Cornell has one of the best scoring offenses in the country, averaging 79.9 ppg and shoots 46.9%. However, they have one of the worst defenses in the country, giving up 75.4 ppg.

Sidekicks' Verdict

Yale statistically has Cornell’s number. Pair the past trends with how much this game means to Yale, it could be a rough day for Cornell. Cornell is solid at home and can light up the scoreboard, but Yale can hang with them and plays better defense. I am playing this to win 3 units. Yale wins and covers.
