Sophomore Guy Ragland Jr. posted his second career double-double to lead four double-figure scorers as Cornell improved to 3-1 on the season with an 83-61 victory over a game Ithaca College squad on Friday evening at Newman Arena. The Big Red gradually pulled away against its Division III opponent, improving to 6-0 all-time against the Bombers.

Ragland had 14 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a blocked shot, while Keller Boothby matched him in the scoring column with 14 points and seven rebounds. Greg Dolan chipped in 12 points, seven rebounds, and six assists, while Nazir Williams had 12 points. Sean Hansen and Isaiah Gray each had seven points and Chris Manon had five points, four rebounds, and four assists in the win. Cornell hit 12 3-pointers and shot 48 percent from the floor, assisting on 21 baskets and holding the Bombers to 33 percent shooting, including just 6-of-30 from 3-point range.

Logan Wendell had a game-high 16 points with five rebounds and three assists to lead the Bombers, while Jack Stern notched 10 points and grabbed six boards. Ithaca cut an 18-point deficit to six with 14:07 left in regulation on consecutive 3-pointers by Wendell, but Max Watson hit a 3-pointer on the other end to trigger a game-clinching 12-2 run for the home team. Once built up, Ithaca never got back within 15 points the rest of the way.


Cornell will be back in action on Tuesday when they host Canisius at 5 p.m. before the Thanksgiving break.
