Harvard women’s basketball headed to the University of Virginia to compete in the Cavalier Classic this past weekend, playing two tightly contested games in two days.
Harvard will look to rebound to the ways of last year when the team lost just 2 games at home. The Crimson hopes to improve on this home record in the newly-renovated Lavietes Pavilion. Construction finished in September, just in time for the new season.
As much cold as winter can bring, Harvard basketball and ice hockey teams promise sizzling action this season. Both men's and women's basketball aim to take the next step and claim an elusive championship. Meanwhile, men's hockey looks to rediscover magic from last year, while women's hockey looks to rebound.
Picked to finish third in the Ivy League behind Princeton and Penn, the Crimson returns a bevy of talent and experience as it seeks to build on last year's 21-9 season.
