Senior wing Wesley Saunders averaged 16.6 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game this season, capping his career with a 26-point performance against North Carolina in the NCAA tournament.
North Carolina and Harvard have essentially equal experience playing on the big stage of the tournament, something that more and more Davids have become able to say as they step up to slay Goliath.
The winner of Friday night's Harvard-Yale game will clinch a share of the Ancient Eight title. The Bulldogs and Brown stand in the way of the Crimson's fourth straight trip to the Big Dance.
Despite trailing by as many as 12 points early on, the Crimson stormed back to beat Princeton on Friday, 63-55, to take command of the Ancient Eight standings.
Despite a poor offensive performance in the first half, the Harvard men’s basketball team (17-5, 7-1 Ivy) won handily against Cornell (12-12, 4-4) thanks to a big run to open up the second half.
After a sloppy loss to Boston College the week prior, the men's basketball team overcame some early weak shooting and rode strong defense to a win over Bryant.
After shooting an abysmal 25 percent from the field and 12.5 percent from beyond the arc to go along with 10 turnovers in the first half, the Crimson, catalyzed by senior forward Jonah Travis, came back to force overtime against Boston College on Wednesday before falling, 64-57.
