Still-undefeated Maryland (7-0) took its first lead within three minutes of the second frame, and although the Aiken-led Crimson continued to fight tooth-and-nail, it could not withstand a 10-point spurt from Terps lead scorer Anthony Cowan that pulled the game away for Maryland.
The Crimson now books itself a heavyweight bout with No. 5 Maryland tomorrow, a contest that will surely be a litmus test for a Harvard team with deep tournament aspirations.
A breakout performance from first-year guard Annie Stritzel propelled the Crimson to a 53-44 victory over winless Hartford on Friday night as Harvard preserved its undefeated home record.
