College Hoops Go-Round: December 21

The Holiday Festival at Madison Square Garden and an ACC doubleheader were the main highlights of a day when much of the East Coast was still buried by snow.

The weather (and probably ticket prices) meant low attendances at the Hoiiday Festival at MSG, which is a shame as both games were highly entertaining.

Cornell rallied to beat Davidson, 91-88 in overtime. The Big Red will meet St. John's in the final Monday (MSG, 9:30 p.m. ET). The Red Storm pulled away from Hofstra late, clinching their berth with a 72-60 victory.  The Pride meet the Wildcats, coached by Hofstra alum Bob McKillop, in the consolation game (MSG, 7 p.m. ET).

In other Sunday action,

  • UCF put up a fight at no. 14 Connecticut, but the Knights fell 60-51, despite holding a five-point lead at halftime.
  • Rhode Island survived a scare from Fairfield, 89-84.
  • Sam Houston State won easily at Auburn107-89.
  • Iowa State had no trouble with Bradley, prevailing 87-68.
