College Hoops Picks ATS—Feb. 20: Columbia Lions at Brown Bears

Ryan BrennanSenior Analyst IFebruary 20, 2009

Columbia Lions (5-3, 10-12) at Brown Bears (1-7, 7-15)

Friday, Feb. 20—7:00 PM EST


Preview

Columbia is currently in second in the Ivy standings after winning both of their games last weekend. They started the season in a hole after playing Cornell twice (losing both times)—they have since gone 5-1.

Brown is in last in the Ivies, but they are coming off their first conference win of the season. Last Saturday, they upset Princeton 61-43. The Bears have missed slightly a few times this season—a two-point loss to Yale, a two-point loss to Dartmouth, and a one-point loss to Harvard. Had they won those three games, everyone would be singing a very different tune about their squad right now.

The last time these two faced each other, the Lions walked away with a six-point victory.
