Sophomore midfielder Eric Slingerland and the Crimson will ride down to Washington, D.C. on Saturday for their third contest of the season. The game is crucial for Harvard as they hope to gain momentum going into its ensuing matchup against No. 11 Duke and the start of Ivy League play.
With the best records in program history the past two years, back-to-back Ivy Championships, and a berth to the NCAA tournament for the first time since the Truman Administration, the Harvard men’s basketball team has brought a new energy to its fans and to Harvard’s campus as a whole.
Though senior attackman Jeff Cohen earned a hat trick in Saturday’s contest against No. 20 Hofstra, the No. 15 men’s lacrosse team never led in the 7-6 loss to the Pride. The defeat marked the Crimson’s first of 2012.
Stephen Jahelka, Sean Mahon, Jake Gambitsky, Brian Fischer, Will Walker, and Keegan Michel (left to right) lead a talented and deep freshman class that brings Top 100 talent to every position. Already returning nine starters, the addition of the rookies gives the Crimson a strong sense of confidence as it tries to avenge a loss in last year’s Ivy title game.
After going one for five from the free-throw line in the Harvard men’s basketball team’s loss at Princeton, junior forward Kyle Casey turned in a strong performance against the Tigers on Friday night, scoring 20 points.
Rookie forward Steve Moundou-Missi led the Harvard men’s basketball team offensively in its Friday night matchup against Brown, posting 14 points on four-of-five shooting in 18 minutes off the bench. Moundou-Missi added six rebounds and a career-high four blocks in the victory.
Freshman Nick Hopcroft, shown here in earlier action, finished 2-1 at this weekend’s CSA Men’s Team Championships. Playing at the No. 4 spot, Hopcroft lost his first match against Manchester before topping his Trinity and Cornell opponents. Harvard took third place at the tournament.
