Brown Goes for a Sweep

Brown is going for its third sweep of the series in the last four seasons (the league did not play in Covid-affected 2021) after its 77-70 home victory on Jan. 7. The Bears have split their four games since, beating co-league leader Princeton and Columbia and losing to co-leader Cornell and first-division Yale.

Senior guard 6’4 Paxson Wojcik had a career-high 22 points, nine rebounds and four assists in the 80-73 loss at Cornell the last time out. Sophomore guard 6′ Kino Lilly Jr. (16.3 points, 2.5 assists) and active forward 6’8 Nana Owuzu-Anane (10.8 points, 8.0 rebounds) are the Bears’ other double-digit scorers. Owusu-Anane had nine points, 12 rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots against Cornell. The Bears made 38.0 percent from the field in Ithaca, among their worst shooting games of the season.

Brown vs Dartmouth Prediction

This game has magnified import for these teams, which were picked to finish in the second division in a preseason poll but are in the mix for a spot in the league’s postseason tournament, in which only the top four teams qualify. Dartmouth is one game behind co-leaders Princeton and Cornell, and Brown is one more game behind in a three-way tie for fifth place.

With a victory here, Brown gain a tiebreaker edge over Dartmouth, which could turn into a big deal. The Big Green is 5-1-1 ATS in lvy games this season, and is a good play to even the season series.

  • Pick: Dartmouth +1.5 (-104)
  • Season CBK: 31-16 ATS
