Feb. 26th– 6:00 PM V. Dartmouth (5-19); Last Game: L V. Cornell, 96-76

The Men’s Basketball Team seemingly has two sides, considering the Men’s Team defeated the Ivy League’s first place team, Princeton, but dropped a game against the UPenn, 4-4 in Ivy play, a day earlier. The team will need to bring out its best game when facing Harvard and can’t sleep on Dartmouth either. This weekend will be the team’s last home games and it will be Senior Night during the game against Dartmouth. Continue Reading

Providence is bringing the HEAT: Upcoming concerts

Providence has traditionally had a hard time stacking up to New York and Boston when it comes to booking concerts, but this spring is already looking pretty promising.

Lil’ Wayne “I’m Still Music Tour”- Wednesday March 16th at Dunkin’ Donuts Center

Weezy’s managers must have been working overtime. Mr. Carter is back after his stint in jail and he’s already hitting the road for a two month tour. Although his recent tracks didn’t receive the same acclaim as those on Tha Carter III, this show should be filled with sizzurp drenched rhymes and a number of guest performers, including Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj!

Game of the Week

Brown Men’s Ice Hockey Wins 5-1 over St. Lawrence

The Brown Men’s Ice Hockey Team (8-12-4, ECAC 6-10-1) halted a 5-game losing streak with its win, 5-1, against St. Lawrence (9-15-5, ECAC 5-11-1) and, in doing so, improved their positioning for the ECAC Hockey playoffs. Brown jumped out to an early lead and never let St. Lawrence recover. After David Brownschidle (’10) notched a goal 46 seconds into the match, the Brown front line continued to drill the St. Lawrence goalie with shots. The second period was a similar story to the first period as Brown outshot St. Lawrence 9-0. Brown finished the game outshooting St. Lawrence 36-34 in the rout of St. Lawrence. As the season comes to a close, the Brown Hockey Team is in a battle for one of the last spots that will confer the advantage of home ice in the ECAC playoffs. The loss against 8th seeded Clarkson (14-14-2, ECAC 8-9-1) hurt Brown in the standings, but a win against 7th seeded Quinnipiac (13-11-5, ECAC 6-8-4) next weekend could propel Brown up in the standings.

Following its first win against a conference opponent, the Women’s Basketball takes this momentum in to a weekend of home games against Ivy League opponents. The team’s shooting clicked in the win over Cornell, which was fueled by the large contributions from Lauren Clarke, Lindsay Nickel, and Hannah Passafuime.   Continue Reading

Game of the week: Brown Men’s Basketball at Harvard (2/12)

The Brown Men’s Basketball Team had a tumultuous weekend. The Men’s Team, on Saturday, dropped a game against Cornell, who was previously winless in Ivy League play, on the heels of an impressive victory against Columbia, led by the play of Sean McGonagill (’14). After McGonagill’s stunning 39-point performance against Columbia, which earned him the distinction of Ivy Player and Rookie of the Week, the Bears will expect similar results to top Ivy opponents Dartmouth (5-15, IVY 1-5; 2/11 @ Dartmouth; 7:00 PM) and Harvard (16-4, IVY 5-1; 2/12 @ Harvard 7:00 PM) this upcoming weekend. The Harvard Crimson team currently sits at the top of Ivy League Conference, only behind Princeton, and is yet to lose a game at home.

After a close loss at Penn in overtime, the Brown Men’s Basketball team looks to rebound with a weekend of games at home against IVY league opponents. The game against Columbia will be the first home game for the Bears, while classes are in session, since November 24th. The large student turnout expected will hopefully give Brown the spark it has needed.   Continue Reading
