Brown Announces Its 2009-2010 Mens Basketball Schedule
Providence, Rhode Island - Brown men’s basketball
coach Jesse Agel will launch an ambitious 31-game schedule that
opens on the road at St. Francis (NY) on Friday, November 13.
This year’s schedule features five teams that qualified for
last year’s NCAA Championship and a school-record 31
games. Among the highlights of the 2009-2010 slate are two
Big East teams ( Providence, St. John’s), a Big 10
(Minnesota) and ACC opponent (Virginia Tech), and a home game
against cross-state rival Rhode Island, before the Bears open their
Ivy League schedule on the road against Yale on January 15.
Following its season opener against the Terriers, Agel’s squad will compete in the Philly Hoop Group Classic over the next two weeks. The Bears open the Philly Hoop Group Classic by traveling to Blacksburg, Virginia, to battle Virginia Tech on November 15, and will face the St. John’s Red Storm at Carnesecca Arena in Queens, NY, on November 20. The tournament continues at the Palestra in Philadelphia, with the Bears facing Philadelphia Sciences on 11/27, and Siena on 11/28.
Brown will once again play all three of Rhode Island’s Division I teams, and will open its home season at the Pizzitola Sports Center on November 18 against Rhode Island. The Bears will battle cross-town rival Providence on December 7 at the Dunkin Donuts Center, and will travel to Bryant on November 25.
The Bears will travel to Minneapolis, Minnesota to face the Minnesota Golden Gophers on December 5, and will play additional non-league road games at Quinnipiac (12/22), Sacred Heart (12/30) and Army (1/6).
In addition to playing the Rhody Rams at home, Brown will host non-league opponents Maine (11/22), Holy Cross (12/2), Keane State (12/28), American (1/2) and Wagner (1/4) at the Pizzitola Sports Center.
Brown opens its Ivy League schedule on the road against Yale January 15th in New Haven, and return home for a rematch with the Elis on January 22. Princeton visits Providence on January 29, followed by Penn and former Brown coach Glen Miller on January 30. The Bears will also host Dartmouth (2/12) and Harvard (2/13), and two-time defending Ivy Champion Cornell (3/5) and Columbia (3/6) on the final regular season weekend.
