The box score of the men’s basketball 79-37 drubbing of MIT on Tuesday shows Harvard’s dominance in every statistical category, but fails to represent the single stat our Cambridge rivals led in: student attendance.
But another shenanigan of 1961 also lives on, at least in Harvard-Yale lore. The front-page story of a prank issue proclaimed that President John F. Kennedy ’40 had made the last-minute decision to attend The Game.
The situation was strikingly similar to last fall when an early-season injury sidelined the starting quarterback, Andrew Hatch ’09-’11, and then-sophomore Colton Chapple was called on to lead the Harvard football team.
Taking its three-game winning streak to Nickerson Field Wednesday night, the Harvard women’s soccer team (3-2) missed an opportunity to earn its first away victory of the season. At the hands of a dominant performance by Boston University (6-2-1), the Crimson fell 3-0, taking only four shots on goal to the Terrier’s eight.
