American vs Cornell

American U. 65, Cornell 63

  •  

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - Charles Hinkle scored 20 points to lead American University, which hung on to defeat Cornell 65-63 on Sunday.

Hinkle's two free throws with 5 seconds remaining gave the Eagles (4-2) enough breathing room after they built, and squandered, big leads in each half. Hinkle gave American a four-point lead, 65-61, after Josh Figini's 3-pointer with 14 seconds left had drawn the Big Red (2-4) within two.

Chris Wroblewski's layup at the buzzer trimmed the final deficit for Cornell.

American started the game with a 13-2 run, but Cornell cut the Eagles' lead to 30-28 at halftime.

The Big Red led briefly, 38-36, in the second half before a 16-3 run gave American a 52-41 advantage with 5:06 remaining.

Wroblewski scored 21 points to lead Cornell, including 14 in the second half, and Figini finished with 14 points.

Troy Brewer and Riley Grafft scored 12 points each for American.
