Recap: Brown vs. Cornell

Providence, RI (Sports Network) - Johnathan Gray netted 18 points to lead the Big Red as Cornell hung on for a 69-66 win over the Brown Bears in an Ivy League matchup at the Pizzitola Sports Center.

Shonn Miller added 13 points, eight rebounds, and blocked four shots for Cornell (13-12, 5-3 Ivy) as it picked up its third win in a row to rise above the .500 mark for the first time since winning its season-opener on Nov. 10.

Sean McGonagill paced Brown (9-13, 3-5) with 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the floor, but he was also guilty of six turnovers. Cedric Kuakumensah notched a double-double of 13 points and a career-high 19 boards and Matt Sullivan chimed in with 10 points as the Bears were defeated for the fourth time in five games.

Brown held a 21-19 rebounding advantage in the first half, but it also shot just 39.3 percent from the floor and committed nine turnovers before the break. The Big Red took a 40-29 lead into halftime after they drained 5-of-12 from 3-point range in the opening 20 minutes.

The Bears rallied back after the intermission by improving to connect on 44.4 percent of their field goal tries including 6-of-12 from beyond the arc. Cornell almost let its lead slip away as it made just 10-of-19 at the free- throw line in the second half. McGonagill hit a triple with 25 seconds left in regulation to bring Brown within two points. After Cornell's Galal Cancer went 1-of-2 at the charity stripe, Stephen Albrecht's missed a game-tying attempt from distance which gave the Big Red the three-point decision.

Despite the loss, Brown held a 41-31 edge in the rebounding battle. Cornell outscored the Bears, 16-10, in points off of turnovers and also, 29-12, in bench points.

Dorm Report: Rooting for the lesser of two evils

I really do try my best not to hate anyone, seeing as how that word can be thrown around rather easily, which is why it was so tough watching the Florida State-Louisville game on Thursday night.
