Brown vs. Yale Prediction

I’m on Yale here. I get why Brown can compete in this game, but the Bears are in the Ivy League tournament and they’re not getting out of the 4-seed. Yale needs a win here to potentially win the Ivy League regular season title, and will want to send a message in the event these teams meet up again in a few days in the conference tournament. I also trust Yale a lot more on both ends of the floor. Give me the Bulldogs.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
