Cornell Big Red

After winning their first game of the season, Cornell Big Red lost nine-straight games and they hope to end this slump very soon. They have been struggling on the road as they have not won any game in other territories. Jimmy Boeheim is the most talented player in the Big Red’s roster as he averages 19.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. He is followed by Terrence McBride who does 10.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.6 steals a night. Jordan Jones and Josh Warren combine for 16.1 points, 9 rebounds and 4.3 assists for Cornell. Other than that, the team doesn’t have much depth to compete and it has been their glaring weakness in all those losses.
