A couple of comments on the Harvard Game. Cornell was outmanned, so I don’t want to harp on coaching decisions too much, but a couple were interesting. First, I thought Cornell seemed to try to sit on the lead too much over the last 6 minutes of the first half. I have no idea if that was intentional or brought on by Harvard and the stakes, but it felt like they wanted to get to halftime with the lead or a tie, and they played conservatively into a deficit.

My other comment goes to something they’ve done a surprising amount this year (at least to me). For a team that depends nearly exclusively on 2 guys for offense, Cornell spends a lot of time with both guys sitting simultaneously. Boxscore +/- isn’t a totally fair representation, since they make offense/defense substitutions so much, but it is weird that they both are net positive playing so many minutes on a team that is net negative. And even though the subs are exclusively offense/defense, they still leave a bunch of lost offensive possessions when there isn’t a stoppage to get Morgan and Gettings in.

I was surprised how often and long Morgan and Gettings sat, whether together or not. Harvard rests Lewis and Towns for stretches, so they usually play less than 30 minutes. On the other hand, Aiken (when healty), Bassey and Juzang often play 35+ minutes - sometimes 40. Princeton's core often played 35+ minutes as well. It would certainly be to Cornell's advantage if Morgan and Getting could play longer minutes - assuming they could remain effective.
