Junior co-captain Kyle Criscuolo, along with fourth-years Colin Blackwell and Patrick McNally, who returned from injuries suffered earlier in the season, helped lead Harvard to its first ECAC title since 2006.
Harvard coach Katey Stone suggested that her team's eight-goal loss to BC was one of the best things that could have happened to her team—a statement that held true on Friday as the Crimson upended the Eagles in the NCAA semifinals to advance to the national title game.
The Harvard men's hockey team is back in the ECAC tournament final after a dominant first period and a controversial call.
With less than a minute to go—the Harvard men’s basketball team (22-8, 11-3 Ivy) saw three chances to take the lead. Thrice the Crimson got a look it would take again, barely contested threes by its two best scorers, senior wing Wesley Saunders and junior co-captain Siyani Chambers.
All attention was on senior wing Wesley Saunders as he, head down, barreled his way into the paint. As he planted his left foot in the heart of the key, his defender took a slight step backward, likely anticipating the trademark Saunders spin move—not the reverse pivot that took place instead, and certainly not his shovel pass to co-captain Steve Moundou-Missi that took place moments later.
Junior forward Jimmy Vesey came away with his first win against Yale as a member of the Crimson on Friday, netting the 50th goal of his Harvard career in the victory.
Competing to take control of its fate and effectively seal its spot in the NCAA tournament, Harvard would falter against rival Yale, 62-52.
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.
