Harvard will try to avenge its semifinal playoff loss from last year and get one step closer to Ancient Eight glory.
The Crimson was outscored 22-2 and shot 1-of-17 in a brutal opening stanza in Morningside Heights and then hit five threes in a dominant 25-13 opening period in Ithaca, N.Y.,.
The dominance on the glass was nothing new for Harvard, as the Crimson is now out-rebounding opponents by 5.3 boards per game this season, a margin that places the team 53rd in college basketball — above the 85th percentile — and second to Penn in the Ivy League.
The panel discussion revolved largely around the connectivity of female athlete empowerment to broader societal challenges facing gender equity and representation in the workforce.
Harvard (10-7, 2-1 Ivy League) started its weekend road split with a heartbreaking defeat at the buzzer at the hands of the Bulldogs (13-6, 3-1 Ivy League). The Crimson saw its five game winning streak come to an end, however Harvard bounced back the following day with a dominant 100-83 victory against Brown.
This is the second of three road weekends for Harvard before they come home to face Penn and Princeton, the conference’s other two favorites, in two weeks.
