Bears On The Air:  Brown's entire schedule is being broadcast on WPRV-AM 790 with Scott Cordischi, the host of the popular Scott Cordischi on Sports, calling all the action. Former Brown basketball star Russ Tyler '71 (1,133 career points) provides the color analysis.

 

Walker Continues To Impress: Freshman forward Dockery Walker (Dover, DE), Brown's second leading rebounder (4.7 per game), missed the Harvard game due to injury after starting eight straight games for the Bears.  He returned to the lineup against Dartmouth Saturday evening and scored six point. Walker registered his third career double-double with a career high 13 points, on 6 of 6 shooting from the field, and 12 rebounds against Columbia.  He came back with 10 points against Cornell, connecting on 5 of 7 field goals. In his first collegiate starts, Walker had eight points and seven rebounds against Princeton, and eight points and 10 rebounds against Penn. Walker scored nine points on 4 of 5 shooting from the field, and pulled down five rebounds against Yale.  He came off the bench to spark the Bears against Quinnipiac with 10 points and eight rebounds.  Walker was named the Ivy League's Rookie of the Week after making a quantum leap with his play by recording back-to-back double-doubles in games against American and Lyndon State.  He registered his first career double-double on the road against American, scoring 10 points and grabbing 13 rebounds, both career highs. Walker came back with a career best 12 points and 10 rebounds against Lyndon State. Walker is also a two-time StatSheet Ivy League Freshman of the Week. He scored eight points and pulled down six rebounds against Central Connecticut, and came back against Bryant with six points and three rebounds.

 

Long Wait Ends For Ponticelli:  When sophomore forward Tyler Ponticelli (Northbrook, IL) arrived at Brown in the fall of 2009, he never imagined that we would be unable to play for the entire season due to injury.  He made the most of his first collegiate opportunity against Fordham by scoring four points, on 2 of 2 shooting from the field, grabbing three offensive rebounds, and blocking a shot in 16 minutes of play.  Ponticelli pulled down a career high seven rebounds, while adding six points, against Lyndon State.  He scored a career-high nine points against Sacred Heart, connecting on 2 of 2 field goals and 5 of 6 free throws. He pulled down four rebounds against Rhode Island, and a career best five rebounds against New Hampshire.

 

Biber Sees Playing Time: Freshman guard/forward Josh Biber (Lorain, OH) earned playing time in the Brown rotation against Princeton and Penn, scoring four points against each team, while showing some strong athleticism. He grabbed three rebounds against Princeton. Biber saw 16 minutes of action against Providence College and came through with three points and two rebounds against the Friars. Biber played at IMG Academy last year, and averaged 19.2 points and 10.5 rebounds per game as a senior at Southview High School.
