Before the start of the 2012-13 season, the Harvard women’s ice hockey team (21-5-3, 17-3-2 ECAC) set its sights on bringing home the program’s first national title since 1999. The Crimson took a big step toward achieving its ultimate goal Tuesday, earning a share of the Ivy League championship with a 3-1 win over Yale. It was the team’s first title share since 2009.
In 1992, his penultimate year as Cincinnati’s football coach, current Harvard coach Tim Murphy led his Bearcats to a 3-8 finish. Twenty years later, a trio of assistant coaches from that team is preparing to man the sidelines at Super Bowl XLVII, but at the time, Cincy assistants John Harbaugh, Jerry Rosburg, and Craig Ver Steeg hardly looked like hot coaching commodities.
A 20-point lead was not enough for Memphis. An increasingly rowdy crowd of 16,204 couldn’t do the trick either. But a fourth foul on freshman point guard Siyani Chambers? That was all it took to finish off the Crimson, as the Tigers dealt their visitors a 60-50 defeat.
Harvard men’s soccer coach Carl Junot announced his resignation Tuesday after three seasons at the helm of the team, including the most recent 2012 season that saw men’s soccer go 3-11-3 and finish last in the Ivy League with a 0-6-1 conference record.
When the Harvard football team got the ball for the first time in the fourth quarter of The Game, it trailed Yale, 17-13. Five plays later, the Crimson was back on top thanks to a 32-yard pass from senior quarterback Colton Chapple to junior Andrew Berg.
