Harvard's basketball team whipped Williams, 66 to 57, in a dull, sluggish contest on the Ephs' home court Saturday night.
The game was played under a pall when a 60-year old New York City man in the stands suffered a fatal heart attack shortly before the contest was scheduled to begin. The game was held up 30 minutes as resuce teams attempted to revive him.
Williams held Harvard's high-scoring front line of Bob Inman, Barry Williams, and Merie McClung to 35 points, but two sharp-shooting guards took up the slack. Sophomore sensation Keith Sedlacek pumped in 14 points with his patented long jumper, and Leo Scully contributed 12.
The Ephs dominated rebounding in the first half, and the Crimson was unable to take a commanding margin. They held a 35-28 halftime lead.
Early in the second half, however, Scully and Sedlacek were red hot, and propelled the Crimson quintet to a 51-37 lead midway through the period.
