After the Big Red (12-16, 7-7) took their first lead at 30-29, Brandyn Curry hit four straight 3-pointers to give the Crimson a 41-34 advantage with 14:04 left.

Harvard built an 11-point lead, but Cornell closed to 56-55 with 3:54 remaining. After Kyle Casey’s layup, McNally scored the Crimson’s final nine points to finish with 17.

Chris Wroblewski’s 19 points led the Big Red, who also lost to the Crimson 71-60 on Feb. 3.
