March Madness 2010 Upset Alert
12 Cornell vs 5 Temple
East Regional
Final Score 78 Cornell 65 Temple
Cornell is up big on Temple 21 to 11 midway through the first half. Cornell has come out lighting the nets on fire at 81.8% shooting from the floor. Clearly the shooting percentage isn't going to stay that high but it sure looks like Temple is going down as Cornell is winning on the boards and has less turnovers. If Cornell wins look for them to be a hot team going forward as they likely would beat the Badgers in the next round.
Temple has been able to close the gap a little bit as Cornell has cooled off to 68.4% shooting.
What happened to Temples normally stingy defense they have given up 37 in the first half. Halftime score Cornell 37 and Temple 29.
All the stats are against Temple right now they are being out-rebounded have 10 turnovers to 6 and Cornell shot 6 more free throws in the half. Something would really have to change for Temple to come back in this game, the positive for them is their shooting is OK at 50% from the floor.
Cornell still taking it to Temple in the second half they are up ten at 54 to 44. Ryan Whittman has 18 points for Cornell on a scorching 6 of 8 shooting display.
Cornell continues to roll on it is now 68 to 52 with 8 minutes to go. Cornell looks like a very tough team to beat with talent in the middle at forward and at the guard positions.
Well Cornell was up all day as they started hot and then kept the pressure on Temple. Foote had 16,Louis Dale 21, and Ryan Wittman had 20.
