Who's Playing

Stony Brook @ Brown

Current Records: Stony Brook 1-2; Brown 0-3

What to Know

The Brown Bears will be playing at home against the Stony Brook Seawolves at 7 p.m. ET Thursday. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

Brown was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Sunday as they fell 75-70 to the Loyola-Maryland Greyhounds.

Meanwhile, Stony Brook came up short against the Rhode Island Rams on Tuesday, falling 74-64. Forward Kenan Sarvan had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 25 minutes but putting up just two points on 1-for-11 shooting.

The Bears are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They have failed bettors playing the spread in all their past three games, so buyers beware.

The losses put Brown at 0-3 and Stony Brook at 1-2. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Brown is stumbling into the contest with the 40th most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 16.3 on average. The Seawolves have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 27th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.7 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
