NOT-OLD CHRISTINE

Freshman guard Christine Clark, shown here in earlier action, pulled down a career-high eight boards in a 76-64 victory against NJIT yesterday.

With only 3.5 seconds on the clock, Harvard freshman Christine Clark had the ball. She could pass to teammate Brogan Berry, or she could shoot. So she did this. With that shot, Clark helped the women’s basketball team maintain an undefeated Ivy League record. So, who is this rookie from Arizona? This week The Full-Court Press questions the Apley Court resident on her likes, dislikes, and the dancing that goes on behind the scenes.

Every week, the Full-Court Press will give you the sort of personal scoop that you’re not likely to hear at a typical press conference.

Name: Christine Clark

Year: 2014

Stats: The Tucson rookie entered Harvard ranked No. 57 nationally by ESPN, and she hasn’t disappointed. Clark notched her first double-double against Dartmouth with 18 points and 10 rebounds two weeks before the last second shot against Columbia. Recently, Clark led the Crimson in rebounds against Cornell with eight.

Ivy League Favorites Meet Weekend Expectations

Published by Robert S Samuels on January 31, 2011 at 3:11AM

In a highly anticipated weekend, Harvard men’s basketball did exactly what it needed to do, riding to victories over Columbia and Cornell by an average margin of 16 points. In doing so, the Crimson has run it winning streak to eight games and remains atop the Ivy League standings with a 4-0 conference record.

But the Crimson wasn’t the only squad that made a splash over the weekend. In fact, each of the Ancient Eight's clubs played on both Friday and Saturday. And after the dust settled, three teams are undefeated in league play: Harvard and perennial Ivy League powerhouses Penn (8-8, 2-0 Ivy) and Princeton (14-4, 2-0).

Weekend Preview: Busy Crimson Faces Tough Foes

Published by Steven T. A. Roach on January 29, 2011 at 3:11AM

It’s that time of the week again…the Weekend Preview is back and many Harvard athletic teams are in action! Here's the lowdown:

The men’s tennis team kicks off its dual season action this afternoon against Northwestern at 2 p.m. at the Murr Center and continues its play against Purdue tomorrow at noon. Both teams hold leads over the Crimson in the all-time series records, but only slight ones. Harvard last beat Northwestern in 2005 and Purdue in 2008. After over two months of not playing a match, the squad returned to action last weekend against George Washington and Marist in a round-robin singles and doubles tournament. Junior Jonathan Pearlman swept his opponents to win the singles, and the duo of junior Alistair Felton and sophomore Andy Nguyen earned the victory in the doubles.
