The Brown Bears and the Princeton Tigers meet Saturday in the college basketball Ivy League Tournament Semifinals at the Levien Gymnasium. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Brown vs. Princeton Prediction.

Brown Team Preview

The Brown Bears come into the tournament as the 4-seed, finishing the year 12-17 overall including an 8-6 conference record. Kino Lilly Jr. leads the Bears in scoring and assists with 18.4 PPG along with 3.4 APG while Nana Owusu-Anane has 15 PPG with a team-high 8.8 RPG to lead the Bears on the glass as Brown’s only other double-digit scorer this season.

Princeton Team Preview

The Princeton Tigers come into the conference tournament as the top seed, finishing the year 24-3 overall including a 12-2 mark in conference play. Xaivian Lee leads the Tigers in scoring and assists with 17.7 PPG and 3.7 APG along with 5.9 RPG while Caden Pierce has 16.3 PPG with a team-high 9.3 RPG to lead the Tigers on the glass up to this point in the year in addition to 3 APG as well this season. Matt Allocco also has 12.6 PPG with 3 RPG and 3.4 APG to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Princeton up to this point in the year. As a team, Princeton is averaging 76.9 PPG on 46.1% shooting from the field, 36.2% from three and 81.3% from the foul line this season.

Brown vs. Princeton Prediction

I get the case to be made for Brown after covering as a big underdog against Princeton this season, but the Tigers are easily the better team in this matchup and have been the team to beat in the Ivy League this season. Princeton won the last three meetings by similar margins to this and I think there’s a reason the Tigers are favored by this much in a conference tournament game. Give me the Tigers here.
