In an up and down season that saw the Crimson drop five in a row at one point only to later win six consecutively, Healy was without a doubt the most consistent player on head coach Kathy Delaney-Smith’s squad.
That basket, part of a 72-69 win on the road against rival Yale, capped off a program-record 23-point comeback that also marked the fourth-largest comeback in NCAA Division I history.
In a career that was plagued with injuries, Tummala bounced back her senior year and became one of the Crimson's largest threats from beyond the arc.
After a year away from Cambridge in Los Angeles, former Harvard women’s basketball standout Temi Fagbenle was drafted 35th overall in the WNBA draft to the Minnesota Lynx. Fagbenle transferred to the University of Southern California to pursue a graduate degree after playing three years for Harvard. She is the second Harvard player ever to be selected in the WNBA draft.

Despite starting off close games, the Crimson dropped both decisions to the top ranked teams in the Ivy League.
