Below, an excerpt of Brown Athletics game notes for the Bears' visit to Cornell...

Providence, RI - Brown's men's basketball team will make its first full Ivy League road trip of the season, traveling to the Empire State to challenge Columbia on Friday, February 10 in New York City, and then over to Ithaca, New York to face Cornell on Saturday, February 11. Brown fans can listen to all the action on WPRV AM-790, with Scott Cordischi calling the play and Russ Tyler '71 providing the color commentary.

The Records: Brown (7-16, 1-5 Ivy) is coming off home losses to Princeton (77-63) and Penn (65-48) last weekend.

Cornell (8-12, 3-3 Ivy) also split games last week, falling to Harvard, 71-60, while defeating Dartmouth, 68-59.

The Big Red has won the last 10 games between the two teams, including an 66-62 decision late last season in Ithaca. Brown' last win over the Big Red was a 69-64 victory in Ithaca on 2/26/06.
