Miller leads Cornell to 70-63 win over Colgate

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) Shonn Miller scored 20 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, both career highs, as Cornell held off Colgate 70-63 Saturday night.

Miller also had four blocked shots and three steals for the Big Red (4-5).

Cornell jumped out to an 18-7 lead with Johnathan Gray hitting three of his team's four 3-pointers in the spurt. Those were the only shots Gray made in 13 field-goal attempts, 10 from beyond the arc.

The Raiders (3-5) got within a point, 37-36, with 2:16 to go, but the Big Red led 39-36 at halftime.

After Colgate pulled ahead briefly at 42-41, Errick Peck made a layup to spark a 13-5 run and Cornell eventually rebuilt a 13-point lead.

Peck finished with 14 points.

Murphy Burnatowski led the Raiders with 24 points, matching his season high, and Brandon James added 11.

Cornell's win was the 1,200th in program history against 1,313 losses in 114 seasons.

2018 MLB Power Rankings: All-Star update

The All-Star break is a perfect opportunity to sit down and re-evaluate the landscape of Major League Baseball. As it turns out, however, there aren't as many meaningful moves as one might expect.

The unrivaled dominance of the Astros, Red Sox, and Yankees sets us up for a wildly entertaining October, and the uber-talented rosters of the Indians, Cubs and Dodgers will make noise as well. Still, it means the top three (and, moving down, the next three to four teams) in our power rankings haven't experienced much variance in 2018.

The gap between the haves and the have-nots has never been more pronounced than it is in this era, which means the bottom-four teams have stayed pretty steady since May. Yes, the Reds have made a nice jump since Jim Riggleman took over, and the Orioles are about 15 spots lower than we had them in March, but none of the major moves will have any real impact on who we expect to win the World Series this year.

That doesn't mean it's not worthwhile to see where each team stands, however, and these are certainly still subject to change. The Nationals, for example, have enough talent and starpower on the roster to jump into the top six or seven teams as a legitimate title contender at some point.  

The stars are out in D.C. this week, as baseball converges onto the nation's capital. Are the hometown team's stars enough to keep the roster in the conversation for the playoffs?
