For its second straight game, the Harvard men’s basketball team was the clear favorite. Travelling to Dartmouth this weekend, the Crimson hoped to replicate its 16-point victory over the Big Green earlier this month.
After 20 minutes of dominant basketball, the Harvard men’s basketball team had out-dribbled, out-shot, and out-played Colorado on the Buffaloes’ own turf.
The Crimson shredded a weak perimeter defense to dominate from behind the arc, shooting 50 percent from deep. Harvard forced nine turnovers and finished the half with a convincing 12-point lead after jumping out to a 16-4 lead in the first four minutes.
But the fire had been lit.
BOSTON—After losing its lead for the first time since the half with just under six minutes to play, the Harvard men’s basketball team fought back and clinched its first win of the season under the lights of TD Garden.
