Brown vs Princeton Prediction

Princeton closed the season on a strong note, and they’re even my pick to win the tournament, but Brown enters this game streaking with a chance at history. It’s been a long time since the Bears have made the field, and if the duo of Kino Lilly Jr. and Nana Owisu-Asane deliver again, they should be within reach in this game. Spot Brown the points for this Ivy League matchup, and give the Under a look in case the Orinceton defense comes to play.
