@SidekicksPicks CBB Play of the Day - 2/18

Brandon's last two article picks cashed and he's going for three in a row on Friday night!

Check out his Play of the Day below.

Princeton Tigers (17-5) vs Brown Bears (12-13)

The Princeton Tigers travel to Providence, Rhode Island to take on the Brown Bears for a 7:00 pm tip. Princeton is having a tremendous season with an overall record of 17-5, 4-3 on the road. The Tigers are currently 3rd in the Ivy League with a 7-2 record and I wouldn’t be surprised if they finished the season at the top.

Brown is currently 12-13 overall, 5-5 at home. The Bears are 5th in the Ivy League with a 4-6 conference record.

Princeton Analysis

The Tigers are currently on a 2 game winning streak and have won 12 of their last 14 games. They have won 3 of their last 4 games on the road. Princeton has one of the best offenses in the country ranking 11th in the nation for ppg (81.1), 12th in fg% (48.7), and 17th in 3pt% (38.2).

Surprisingly they are terrible from the charity stripe and shoot 66.7% as a team. The Tigers are just an average defensive team and gives up 70 ppg.

Brown Analysis

The Bears have won 2 straight and are 4-6 in their last 10 games. They have been struggling at home, only winning 1 of their last 5 games. Brown has an average defense that gives up 68.4 ppg, but they struggle against the 3, ranking 232nd in defending the 3. They also allow teams to shoot a high percentage, ranking 235th in defensive fg%.

On the other end, Brown scores an average of 71 ppg. They are a pretty average team across the board in every statistical category.

  • Princeton is 12-3 in their last 15 games vs Brown
  • Princeton is 6-1 ats in their last 7 games on the road vs Brown
  • Princeton is 7-1 ats in their last 8 games in February
  • Brown is 4-9 ats in their last 13 games
  • Brown is 0-5 ats in their last 5 home games
  • Brown is 1-5 in their last 6 Friday games
  • The road team in this matchup is 9-3 ats in their last 12 games

Sidekicks' Verdict

Let’s not over think this one. Princeton has a ton to play for with the Ivy League up for grabs. They are by far the better team and can absolutely light up the scoreboard. Road teams around this time scares me a little, but the numbers suggest that this will not matter in this matchup. Brown has struggled at home and Princeton has been dominant over Brown in their last 15 heads to head games.

Look for Princeton to win the 1st half and the game.
