The Brown Bears and the Columbia Lions will meet up on the college basketball court Saturday.

Brown comes into this one at 14-9 overall. The Bears have lost three of their last four, taking out Princeton while dropping to Harvard, Penn and Cornell in that span of outings.

In the OT loss to Cornell, Brown’s Obi Okolie logged 15 points with seven rebonds to lead the scoring. Tamenang Choh put up a double-double for the Bears on 13 points and 10 rebounds with three assists in that one as well.

Over on the Columbia side, they’re currently 6-15 on the year. The Lions have dropped their last five straight, falling to Princeton, Penn, Harvard, Dartmouth and Yale in that time.

In the loss to Yale on Friday, Columbia’s Quinton Aldesh led the way on 23 points and five rebounds. Gabe Stefani also finished in double-figures for the Lions on 14 points with four rebounds and three assists.

The Bears are 7-17 ATS in their last 24 Saturday games and the under is 6-1 in their last seven Saturday games. Brown is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings between these two teams and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings at Columbia.

Meanwhile, the Lions are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games and the over is 7-2 in their last nine Saturday games. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings between these two teams and the over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings at Columbia.

Columbia has been pretty hit-and-miss lately, but they’ve also put up some solid scoring outings. The Lions tallied 70 against Penn and 96 in an OT loss to Harvard, so I like them to step up and compete here. I’m likely going Columbia here.
