In co-captain Christine Clark’s four years playing in Lavietes Pavilion, the Crimson has accomplished nearly everything short of the elusive title.
Clark’s last-second heroics helped the Crimson end Iona’s WNIT run as Harvard outlasted the Gaels (26-6, 18-2 MAAC), 90-89, at the Hynes Athletic Center.
Harvard will face Iona College, a team it has not played for 20 years, on Thursday night. The trip to New Rochelle, N.Y. marks the third consecutive season that the Crimson has advanced to the WNIT.
The Crimson (21-7, 11-3 Ivy) laid it all on the floor in what was potentially the last time that its seniors would suit up in a Harvard jersey.
The Harvard women’s basketball team now has two losses in conference play, and they have one thing in common: the opponent. The Crimson's 63-50 loss to Penn marked its first home defeat since falling to Princeton back in 2012.
The last time that the Princeton women’s basketball team visited Lavietes Pavilion, it saw a 33-game winning streak snapped by a Crimson team led by then-senior Victoria Lippert’s 21 points.
It may have been Valentine’s Day, but the Harvard women’s basketball team did not show Columbia any love on Friday night. The Crimson (16-5, 6-1 Ivy) opened up a four-game homestand at Lavietes Pavilion against the Lions (4-17, 1-6) and shot the lights out in the first half en route to a 99-64 win.
Fueled by hot shooting Friday night against Brown (7-12, 1-4 Ivy) and tough defense against Yale (10-10, 4-2), the Crimson (15-5, 5-1 Ivy) finished off its four-game road trip with wins and now sits atop the Ivy League with sole possession of first place.
Staunch defense and timely foul shooting kept Princeton from regaining the advantage, and the Crimson outlasted the Tigers to win, 78-68, for the first time at Jadwin since 2009.
After its first game of 2014, the Harvard women’s basketball team can cross ‘start Ivy League season undefeated’ off its New Years resolutions.
The Crimson's victory over Rice gives Harvard a 13-1 record, making this the best start for the team since the 1945-46 squad, which saw its season end in the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament.
When the Harvard men’s basketball team (13-1) visited the Rice Owls (5-8) on Jan. 4, a familiar face—Jeremy Lin ‘10—watched from the stands.
James Blake ’00 didn’t have a chance to react before it ended.
Harvard’s 298 offensive yards heading into halftime were nearly double Yale’s output of 174 yards, and the Bulldogs offense, which struggled to put together cohesive drives, did not cross midfield until the second quarter.
45 years later, the details are still clear in the minds of those who took the field that day.
