Brown To Play In CIT

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

 

 Brown has accepted a bid to compete in the 2014 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT) and will be hosting a first round game at the Pizzitola Sports Center against an opponent to be determined on either Monday, March 17, Tuesday, March 18 or Wednesday, March 19. The Bears will be making their fourth postseason tournament appearance.



Coach Mike Martin’s basketball team posted a 15-13 overall record, earning the seventh most wins in Brown basketball history. None of Brown’s 13 losses this season were by double digits. The Bears’ largest defeat was a nine-point loss (75-66) vs. Rhode Island on January 2. Seven of Brown’s losses were by five points or less, including an overtime loss to NCAA-bound Harvard to close the regular season.

The Bears feature senior guard Sean McGonagill, Brown’s third all-time leading scorer with 1,608 career points. The Ivy League’s second leading scorer with 17.7 points per game, McGonagill is Brown’s all-time leader in career treys (247), career starts (113), and single season treys (91).

Junior forward Rafael Maia led the Ivy League in rebounding for the second straight season with 8.1 rebounds per game. Sophomore forward Cedric Kuakumensah, the 2013 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year, shattered his own Brown record for blocked shots in a season with 90, two short of the Ivy League record.



Brown freshmen have earned Ivy League Rookie of the Week honors a school record 10 times this season – forward Leland King (four times), guard Steven Spieth (three times), and guard Norman Hobbie (three times).

Ticket details for Brown’s first round home game will follow.
