Cornell trailed by seven with 13 seconds left. When the buzzer sounded, they were a bucket away from walking away winners.
The Big Red’s improbable comeback fell just short Sunday against the Bryant Bulldogs, as they fell, 82-81.
With the score 82-75, Thurston McCarty drew a foul on a layup, converting the three-point play. McCarty fouled Charles Pride with 11 ticks left, and he missed he front end of the one-and-one. Cornell (1-1) ran it down the floor and then Jimmy Boeheim connected on a three all the way from Ithaca. This quickly cut it to a one-point game.
Now here’s where things get a little funky.
