Here’s something you may have missed whilst enjoying your eggnog, Santa, and [whatever else people do for Christmas, don’t ask this Jew]. Playing Providence College at home for the first time since you were born, Brown men’s basketball pulled a shocking upset of its in-city Big East big brothers, winning 69-68 on a three-pointer from just-announced Ivy League player of the week forward Tucker Halpern with seven seconds remaining. Halpern’s trey completed a seven-point comeback in the last 43 seconds. Awesome.
OK, so this rockin’ victory happened last Friday, but give us a break (eh? break? see what I did there?), we’re on vacation. Da Bears get another crack at an in-state rival with more pedigree when they go to URI tomorrow. Ivy League play opens January 19 at Pizzitola vs. Yale. Blog will be there. Will you?
