The Cornell Big Red will be returning home after a two-game road trip. Cornell and the Brown Bears will face off in an Ivy battle at 2 p.m. ET Saturday at Newman Arena at Bartels Hall. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Big Red winning the first 74-72 on the road and Brown taking the second 81-80.

Cornell was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Saturday as they fell 95-89 to the Harvard Crimson.

Meanwhile, Brown strolled past the Columbia Lions with points to spare on Saturday, taking the contest 97-85.

Cornell is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Saturday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Brown's victory lifted them to 10-9 while Cornell's defeat dropped them down to 14-5. We'll see if the Bears can repeat their recent success or if the Big Red bounce back and reverse their fortune.
