Today starting at 9 a.m. undergraduate students have the opportunity to score free tickets to this weekend’s men’s hockey and men’s basketball games simply by presenting their Harvard ID at the Harvard Ticket Office in the Murr Center.
On the verge of an upset at Lavietes Pavilion last night, Monmouth led Harvard by nine with 8:23 remaining in the second half. But the Crimson (8-3) responded with 11 straight points and held off the Hawks (4-9) to win, 74-69.
Glenn Fine ’79 started the day in Baltimore, where he met with the Rhodes Scholarship committee. In the afternoon, he boarded a private plane donated by a Harvard alumnus to fly back to Boston. Upon landing, he received a police escort to the Boston Garden and then played the full 40 minutes as the Crimson took on undefeated Boston College.
Forward is a position of contradictions. Great big men require power and finesse, brawn and brains, flair and efficiency. The post is a place for yeomen whose often-uncelebrated work—crashing the boards, defending the rim, setting picks—is the linchpin of great basketball. The role is a natural fit for junior Keith Wright.
