PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Last weekend’s convincing win over Cornell marked the third-in-a-row for Brown, positioning the Bears inside the Ivy League playoff picture.
“Every time you win, it raises the stakes for a conference championship,” said head coach Mike Martin.
With four games remaining, the Bears control their own destiny.
“That’s definitely what we’re going for,” said forward Nana Owusu-Anane. “Why not? Why not try to win the whole league.”
The Bears are back on the road this weekend at Princeton Friday, followed by Penn on Saturday – two teams with similar postseason aspirations.
“If we lose tomorrow, we’re putting ourselves in a tough place if we want to win a regular season championship,” Martin said.
It’s an accomplishment in and of itself for Bruno to be in this position.
“I think when you build a program, you have to be able to withstand adversity. Our players have,” he said.
“We never lost belief. We’re trying to build off that and continue to keep winning games,” Owusu-Anane said.
Brown could clinch its first Ivy League postseason berth this weekend with two wins and some help around the league.
