Brown @ Columbia

Current Records: Brown 13-12; Columbia 7-20

What to Know

The Brown Bears will hit the road for the third straight game as they head to Francis S. Levien Gymnasium at 2 p.m. ET Saturday. The Columbia Lions will be strutting in after a victory while the Bears will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Brown found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 90-69 punch to the gut against the Pennsylvania Quakers on Saturday.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Columbia beat the Dartmouth Big Green 71-65 on Saturday.

Brown is the favorite in this one, with an expected 9-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (7-0-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.

Brown had enough points to win and then some against Columbia in the teams' previous meeting in January, taking their contest 97-85. The rematch might be a little tougher for the Bears since the squad won't have home-court advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
