PRINCETON, N.J. -- Ivy League men's basketball continues its serving of hoops for the holidays with a trio of games on three-straight days to close out the final weekend of 2012.

A couple of Ancient Eight squads make trips out west as both Yale and Harvard play Saint Mary's (Calif.) on back-to-back days. It will be second game for both teams with Yale taking on Nevada on Friday night and Harvard facing California on Saturday night.

Brown and Cornell tip off the weekend on Friday night with the Big Red playing at Saint Francis (Pa.) and Brown hosting Providence at home for the first time since Nov. 30, 1982, when the two teams met at Marvel Gymnasium. The cross-town rivals meet in a game to be carried live on the NBC Sports Network.

Penn and Princeton are also in action as the Quakers make the short trek to Staten Island to play Wagner on Saturday afternoon and Princeton heads to the Buckeye State to face Akron on Sunday night.

Hummer poured in 15 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block vs. Rider.
