You think Brown sports teams are a bit boring, don’t you? That’s the underlying assumption, right? After all, The Herald ran a series about how we’re “Underdog U.” But maybe we’re all just really attending the wrong sports. Women’s basketball coach Jean Marie Burr won her 300th game last week against Dartmouth, and the wrestling and men’s tennis teams are racking up some impressive wins. Maybe you’ll cheer them on this weekend, or maybe you’ll stick with the typical hockey. Here’s a quick schedule of Bruno’s home matches this weekend:
Friday, Feb. 3
M. hockey looks to stay in the playoff picture with a win over Clarkson at 7pm.
But if hockey’s not your thing, m. basketball will be battling Princeton next door at the Pizz., also at 7pm.
And then, if you get bored watching tall dudes run up and down a court, you can head to the indoor tennis courts in the Pizz to watch w. tennis against PC at 8pm.
Saturday, Feb. 4
M. tennis v. Binghampton at 10am. It’s too early for us to watch, and we’re too tired to say much about it. M. tennis again gets busy against Bryant at 1:30pm.
An hour later (11am), the wrestling team hosts Drexel for some non-conference fun. They also brawl again at 2pm against Penn.
M. basketball also looks to maul some quakin’ pacifists at 6pm.
M. hockey looks for two conference points after checking St. Lawrence off the list at 7pm.
Sunday, Feb. 5
Just m. tennis vs. Quinnipiac at 2:30pm. But let’s be real, at that point you’ll be knee deep in Super Bowl pregame coverage and some cold ones.
Bonus round: regardless of who you’re rooting for in the big game, you’ll be cheering on one Bear or another. Bill O’Brien ’92, the Patriots’ offensive coordinator, is a Brown grad, and Zak DeOssie ’07 is a linebacker and long snapper for the Giants. You’re secretly always cheering for the Bears in your hearts, and you know you want to follow @BDH_Sports for all the latest updates on your big bad Bears.
