Gutty, ugly win. Great to win this game on the road after starting slow, running hot, losing the lead and needing a bucket at the buzzer. Perfect for pre-Ivy season.

Cambridge 31 and unstoppable. Okolie with the quietest 15-point game you’ve ever seen. Choh saved the game and was huge - getting the layup, big on the boards and scoring. Hunsaker really solid 5 assists, 1 TO). Mitchell with 6 and 8 in some key PT.

Cambridge is a unique talent any team in the country would be happy to have on their team. Choh is just a shade below that. Their confidence, as well as that of the team, continues to grow. Hunsaker had two quick fouls and missed most of first half but played a big role in second, playing with four fouls much of the latter portion. Okie showing great senior leadership. Mitchell was strong with six points and eight boards. Martin uses the roster very well. Five wins in a row and 11-4 record is very rare for the Bears. Heady times as we approach league play.

Those weekends in New Haven and Providence will not be pleasant excursions for the other six Ivy squads this year.

This is another game Brown squads historically rarely win. Three really impressive non conference wins IMO - SDSU, Canisius, and Stony Brook - show that this team may be for real.

I think we saw just how much we missed Hunsaker's steadiness when he was out in the first half with foul trouble. He is not the flashiest player, and I do wish he would hit more of the naked looks he gets from 3, but he does all the little things on both ends that contribute to a winning team.

It is clear we have 3 guys who are elite at both ends of the court - Dez, Obi, and Choh. We saw last night when you toss Mitchell out there the team switches a lot and is really disruptive to the opposing offense.

I like Anderson off the bench. Given the make up of the team I think his skill set is best used in a role anywhere from 15-24 minutes a game. He is a high usage guy and I'm not sure he warrants having the ball more than Dez, Obi, or Choh. However, in burst off the bench I think he can add a lot of value with potential upside. Im not sure, given his body language that he has bought into this role yet - and I get it he is young and had a lot of statistical success in the past - but if he does buy in Brown is going to give opponents a very very tough 40 minutes.
