PRINCETON, N.J. -- Ivy League men's basketball is back on the NBC Sports Network with a pair of key matchups with Brown at Cornell on Saturday night and Yale at Columbia on Sunday afternoon.
Both matchups are return meetings from earlier this season as the League's double round-robin schedule moves down the home stretch.
Cornell leads the all-time series with Brown, 73-47. The Bears have won the last two in row over the Big Red, which ended the Big Red's 13-game winning in the series. Brown beat Cornell 78-66 on Jan. 31 in Providence, R.I. Kenny Rice (play-by-play) and Dalen Cuff (analyst) are set to be on the call for this game.
