SAN DIEGO — The University of San Diego basketball team will play host to an Ivy League school for the first time tonight when Brown visits the USD Sports Center for a 7:30 game.
USD (3-4) has met an Ivy League school only one other time. In the first round of the 1984 NCAA tournament, USD lost to Princeton, 65-56, at Philadelphia.
Tonight's game begins a four-game home stand for USD, which will also play Missouri-Kansas City, United States International University and Texas-Arlington.
Brown (3-2) is led by junior forward Marcus Thompson, who averages 19.8 points per game. The Bears have beaten the likes of New Hampshire and Bryant College but also defeated Texas.
USD, which was impressive in a 76-53 victory over San Diego State almost two weeks ago, is coming off a 71-59 loss to Cal State Fullerton Wednesday.
