Yale vs. Brown preview


Where: Lee Amphitheater, New Haven

When: Today, 2 p.m.


Records: Brown (7-8, 0-1 Ivy); Yale (8-7, 1-0)

Scouting Yale: The Bulldogs won at Brown last week as Greg Mangano scored 23 points and grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds. Yale still needed to hold on down the stretch and got crucial free throws from Reggie Willhite and Porter Braswell to close the game out the 69-64 victory.

Scouting Brown: Tucker Halpern scored 11 straight points in the Brown’s loss to Yale last week. Halpern has a deadly outside shot. The Bears are deep and have split the season series against Yale four of the last five seasons. They won at Yale last in the Ivy League opener. Brown (7-8, 0-1 Ivy) played its last non-conference game on Monday and knocked off Quinnipiac 87-78 as Halpern scored 26 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, both career highs. Brown's seven non-league wins are the third most in the program's history. Peter Sullivan (13.7 ppg., 5.8 rpg.) leads the Bears in scoring and rebounding. Yale, though, held him to four points and four rebounds last Saturday. Sullivan is 13th on Brown's all-time scoring list with 1,240 career points. The Bears (.754) began the week 20th in the nation and second in the Ivy League in free throw percentage.

Youth Day: All children under 14 years old will admitted free and there will be an autograph session after the game.
