On Tuesday evening, Harvard men's basketball honored its six outgoing seniors and announced its captains for the upcoming 2019-2020 campaign.
The Crimson conclude its season with a 19-12 overall record and an appearance in the NIT second round for the first time in program history.
Harvard’s renewed confidence showed immediately in Friday night’s first-round win over Drexel, as it accelerated to a 20-point first quarter to complete a wire-to-wire, 69-56 victory.
But with three minutes left in its season, the Crimson found the grit and composure to fight back on both ends of the floor, riding cagey point guard play and clutch free throw shooting from Bryce Aiken to a 71-68 win, a signature moment of the 2018-2019 season.
The Crimson will travel back to Washington D.C. — where it defeated Howard on Martin Luther King Day — to face perennial Big East foe Georgetown in the first round of the National Invitational Tournament(NIT).
Thus, it is perhaps written in stone that this process will pay dividends only in Year Four for these juniors.
The Harvard men’s basketball team dashed past the Quakers in the final minutes to book a spot in the tournament final in New Haven.
For the second straight season, the Crimson has ended the Big Green's season, contributing to a budding rivalry in the ECAC.
“I'm more so excited than feeling pressure,” Juzang said. “That's my thing. I'm excited. We got an opportunity to stay alive in this thing and an opportunity to keep our postseason going. So for me, it's just excited to get back to work this week, and to have another weekend alive.”
The Crimson celebrate its second consecutive Ivy regular season title.
Junior big Chris Lewis was all smiles as he held the championship trophy.
The Harvard men's basketball team earned its seventh Ivy League regular season title with a 83-81 victory over Columbia.
The last time these two teams played, Harvard and Columbia went to triple overtime. Tonight, the stakes will be markedly higher, as the Crimson attempt to seal yet another regular season Ivy League Championship.
It took overtime again, but Harvard men’s basketball was able to knock off Columbia for the second time this season, clinching a second consecutive regular season Ivy League title in the process.
A road sweep over Cornell and Columbia would be the most direct path to the program’s seventh-ever Ivy League title, an honor it would share with the Yale Bulldogs if its New Haven foes can similarly knock off Princeton and Penn.
