NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The No. 2 Yale men's squash team will play its final road game of the season this Saturday when the team travels to Providence, R.I., to take on the No. 13 Brown Bears.

The Bulldogs (10-1, 4-0 Ivy) will look to continue their strong play of late against struggling Brown (2-7, 0-4 Ivy). 

Yale is coming off a thrilling 5-4 road victory over No. 4 Princeton last Saturday, and will be the heavy favorite in the team's penultimate regular-season match.  Brown is coming off a Jan. 31 split that included a 5-4 win over No. 15 Bowdoin and a 6-3 loss to No. 11 Bates.

After Saturday's match, the Bulldogs will close out their regular-season slate of matches on Feb. 13 at home against No. 5 Harvard, a match which will be video streamed live via Yale All-Access on  Yale controls its own destiny with regard to the Ivy League title; two wins to close out the season will secure the Ivy championship for the Elis.  

Schedule note: Yale's match against Columbia scheduled for Feb. 10 has been cancelled.
