PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) Chris Wroblewski scored 24 points and grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds to lead Cornell past Brown 69-63 Friday night, snapping a two-game skid and giving the Big Red the season sweep.
Cornell (11-14, 6-5 Ivy League) also surpassed last season's overall win total and matched its league wins mark.
The Big Red led by as many as 15 in the first half and 42-31 at the break.
After Cornell stretched the lead to 17, the Bears closed to six points, at 62-56 with 3:27 remaining. Brown could get no closer until Dockery Walker's jumper with 7 seconds later made it 68-63. Wroblewski scored five of the Big Red's final seven points.
Walker's 23 points and 17 rebounds, both career highs, led the Bears (7-21, 1-10), who have lost eight straight.
