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.
