On a night where tipoff was delayed 15 minutes by Columbia’s Senior Day ceremonies, it was Harvard’s original class of 2015 that shined strongest.
Up seven with just under two minutes to go, the Cornell basketball team committed the cardinal sin: fouling a three-point shooter. The first free throw clanged off the iron. The gym got louder. Miller took a deep breath but missed the second. And then the third.
For about two years now, Harvard men’s basketball coach Tommy Amaker has called point guard Siyani Chambers “the most important player” on the Crimson roster—with 2.9 seconds left in Friday night’s game, the junior co-captain earned that moniker.
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.
The momentum regained by Siyani Chambers’s three helped Harvard reclaim the top spot in the Ancient Eight standings, as the Crimson (15-5, 5-1) took down Yale, 52-50, Saturday night at John J. Lee Amphitheater.
Between a career night from its senior wing and stellar bench play, the Crimson had just enough to beat Brown in overtime on Friday.
Harvard held off the Terriers for 82 minutes, but a turnover in the defensive zone by the Crimson led to junior forward Danny O’Regan getting open in the crease and delivering the final blow.
After a first half that featured a bevy of jump shots from beyond the arc, it was the other kind of three-point play that made the difference down the stretch for the Harvard men’s basketball team en route to its 75-72 victory over Princeton on Friday evening at Jadwin Gymnasium.
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.
With a 64-57 overtime decision that saw the Eagles blow the Crimson off the court for two five-minute stretches and struggle to score in the other 35, Jim Christian’s squad snapped a three-game skid and handed Harvard its third road loss in five contests.
The Crimson rode lockdown defense and a strong performance from sophomore guard Corbin Miller to a 57-46 victory on the road.
Yale dominated the second edition of the Rivalry on Ice at Madison Square Garden, cruising to a 4-1 win.
Classmates Wesley Saunders and Steve Moundou-Missi ended their 2014 on a high note with a win over Grand Canyon.
Seniors Wesley Saunders and Steve Moundou-Missi were integral parts of Harvard's 72-59 win over Grand Canyon Tuesday night.
After losses to Virginia and Arizona State the Crimson rebounded against Grand Canyon to the tune of 52 percent shooting from the field and 50 percent from three.
While the shots may not have fallen in Harvard Men's Basketball 76-27 drubbing at the hands of Virginia, one thing likely fell after the loss—the likelihood of the Ivy League getting two bids to the NCAA Tournament in March.
