They will square off against the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday at William H. Detrick Gymnasium. Bragging rights belong to Brown for now since they're up 3-1 across their past four matchups.

Brown is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread on Sunday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
