Cornell (13-11, 5-3) will be at Princeton (5-3) on Friday night and Penn (3-5) on Saturday. Both games are the second games of double-headers with the women's games being played first.

The first game on Friday is scheduled for 5:30 pm and the men's game is set for 8 pm. On Saturday, the women's game is scheduled for 4:30 pm and the men's game is planned for 7:00 pm.

At KenPom, the Big Red are 70-63 underdogs against Princeton and 75-66 underdogs against Penn. I think KenPom only had them as the favorite against Columbia at home, over the first 8 games, so they will look to continue upsetting those predictions.

A win against Princeton would tie the season series (first game was a 70-61 home loss), while a win against Penn would give them a sweep (first game was a 80-71 home win). The sweep against Penn would be huge for Tournament tiebreakers.

Right now, the Yale Undergraduate Sports Analytics Group has them at #4 with a 49.6% chance of making the Ivy Tournament.

Hardly the first Penn/Princeton trip that ends in being swept. Still, if the guys can beat Brown, there are a lot of potential paths to the ILT. Lose and the Big Red will need help.

Hard to believe how bad the rebounding has been the last few games. It was never a strength, but yikes!
