The Brown women's basketball team will travel to Hackensack, NJ to take on Fairleigh Dickinson on Tuesday, Nov. 23. The Bears will be looking for their first win of the season after falling to defending Atlantic 10 champion Temple, 68-61, at home this past Friday night. FDU is 1-1 on the year after falling to Davidson College. 65-60, and defeating Winthrop 66-42 at the Lancer Invitational over the weekend.
Brown faced the Knights in its season-opener last year with the Bears picking up a convincing 69-52 victory. Senior Holly Robertson will look to do more damage as she scorched FDU for 19 points on 9-11 shooting off the bench in the win last season. On Friday against Temple, she led Brown with 19 points and nine rebounds. Juniors Sarah Hayes and Colleen Kelly added 15 and 14 points respectively. Hayes also had a game-high five steals.
Game time is set for 7 p.m. at the Rothman Center in Hackensack, NJ tomorrow night. The Bears will then play in the Binghamton Time Warner Classic beginning on Nov. 27. Brown will face Robert Morris in the opening round and either host Binghamton or Marshall in the final round on Sunday. The Bears return home on Dec. 1 for a match-up against in-state rival URI at the Pizzitola Center.
