Brown Basketball Schedule Released

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

 

The 2013-2014 Brown University men's basketball schedule was released today and the Bears will host intrastate rival URI on January 2nd and travel to PC on November 13th and Bryant on November 27th.

Also highlighting the non-conference shedule for Mike Martin's team is another trip to Northwestern to take on the Wildcats out of the Big Ten three days before Christmas.

The Bears' Ivy opener will be on the road January 18th at Yale.  That will be followed by three straight home games against Yale, Cornell and Columbia.

Brown meets Ivy League-favorite Harvard in Cambridge, Mass on February 7th and will wrap up the regular season at home against the Crimson on March 8th.

Here is the school's official release and the 2013-2014 schedule:

Brown Releases its 2013-14 Men’s Basketball Schedule

Providence, R.I. – Coming off a fourth place finish in the Ivy League standings, Brown head basketball coach Mike Martin has released the 2013-14 Men’s Basketball schedule, featuring six non-conference home games, including a match-up against cross-state rival URI at the Pizzitola Sports Center, non-conference road games at Providence and Northwestern, and an exciting 14-game Ivy League schedule.

"We believe our non-conference schedule will prepare us for another very competitive Ivy League season,” said Martin. “We welcome the challenges that await us this year. Our three fellow Division 1 programs in Rhode Island are all rapidly improving and we look forward to playing Providence, URI, and Bryant. Returning to Chicago to play Northwestern will be great for senior All-Ivy Sean McGonagill as well as all the Brown Alumni in the Midwest."

Martin’s squad features four returning starters, including first team All-Ivy point guard Sean McGonagill ‘14, All-Ivy forward Tucker Halpern ‘14, Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year Cedric Kuakumensah ’16, and forward Rafael Maia ’15, the Ivy League’s leading rebounder, and six exciting freshmen.

The Bears, one of the most improved teams in the nation last season, open their season at home against Binghamton onNovember 10 at the Pizzitola Sports Center. The Rhode Island Rams travel to the Pizzitola Sports Center on Thursday, January 2 for the 157th meeting between the two Ocean State schools. Martin’s team will also play non-conference home games against Central Connecticut (November 30), Albany (December 10), New Hampshire (January 7) and Daniel Webster (January 11).

Brown plays its first road game on November 13 against Providence College at the Dunkin Donuts Center, with the Friars looking to avenge last year’s 69-68 loss to the Bears on College Hill. Brown will also play non-league road games at Sacred Heart (November 16), UMass Lowell (November 19), Longwood (November 22), Bryant (November 27), American (December 7), Northwestern (December 22), and Niagara (December 29).

Martin’s squad will play seven Ivy League home games, opening with Yale on January 25. Cornell and Columbia come to the Pizzitola Sports Center on January 31 and February 1, while Princeton and Penn play the Bears at home on February 14-15. Brown concludes its regular season on March 7-8, first hosting Dartmouth and then the defending Ivy League champions Harvard.

A quick look at the schedule seems to clearly indicate that few, if any, non-conference teams are interested in playing at the Pizzitola Center.
