The Crimson (6-2-1, 2-1-1 ECAC) has averaged 4.22 goals per game so far this season, but the Saints (8-4-4, 5-0-2) have surrendered just a goal a game in conference play.
Tomorrow night Patrick Steeves ’16 will be lacing them up under the lights of Lavietes Pavilion once again—this time, however, he won’t be donning the familiar Harvard uniform he wore as an undergraduate.
Looking to continue its current three game win streak, the Harvard women’s basketball team will take on Fairfield Saturday at Lavietes Pavilion for a 6 p.m. tip off.
Tonight, No. 9 Harvard will return to Agganis Arena for the first time since knocking off the No. 1 Terriers in 2014.
Headlined by a football game that needs no introduction, the weekend before Thanksgiving is one of the only true sports weekends Cambridge ever gets. And this year, the weekend is set to begin with one heck of an opening act.
Junior offensive linesman Larry Allen holds back Dartmouth defenders to give junior running back Semar Smith enough room to make a play during the team’s narrow 23-21 win over the Big Green. The past few games have been close wins for the Crimson, and the team will need to step up to shut Penn down.
Harvard football has never won four straight Ivy League titles. Period. Tonight at 8 p.m., the Crimson (7-1, 5-0 Ivy) has a chance to change that. Squaring off against second-place Penn (5-3, 4-1 Ivy), Harvard can clinch at least a share of the championship. Lose, and the Crimson will drop into a tie.
This weekend at the NCAA Regionals, the Harvard women’s cross country team (29-17, 6-3 Ivy League), along with sophomore Kieran Tuntivate from the men’s team, will look to continue to make history two weeks after a strong showing at Heps in which the women placed first and the men had a Top 10 finish.
The Harvard women’s hockey team doesn’t believe in rebuilding years. After graduating five seniors last year and recruiting six new freshmen to the ice in Cambridge, the team is prepared to prove wrong those who view the 2016-2017 season as one solely for growth.
While a significant portion of the team lacks big-game experience—or college experience in general—the 2016-2017 roster could go down as the one of the most talented of the Tommy Amaker era.
Losses, especially against Ivy League rivals, are hardly ever motivating. But coming off a close five-set loss against conference-leading Princeton last weekend, Harvard will be hungry to win against two other Ancient Eight opponents on the road trip of the season.
Entering its penultimate regular season matchup with a three-point lead in the Ivy League table, the Harvard men’s soccer team has the opportunity to clinch its first Ancient Eight title since 2009 with a win at Jordan Field on Saturday against visiting Columbia.
Hobey Baker winner Jimmy Vesey ’16 is now a member of the New York Rangers. Not to mention, two-year captain Kyle Criscuolo has departed as well. But fear not Cambridge, for the Bright lights are not to be extinguished just yet. A new act is in town, and it’s ranked No. 12 in the nation.
