The Harvard men's basketball team learned a lesson on Saturday: Colgate fights more than just plaque.
In a non-league game, Colgate (4-4) shot its way past the Crimson (3-3), 88-79.
Colgate sophomore guard Dave Hardy led the way for the Red Raiders, shooting 16-for-19 from the free throw line en route to a career-high 21 points.
Harvard captain Dan Clemente led all scorers with 29 points, including four three-pointers, tying him for the Harvard career three-point mark.
Clemente has 167 three-pointers during his four-year career, equaling the record set by Mike Gilmore '96.
Earlier in the season, Clemente surpassed 1,000 career points. He currently stands at 1,116 points on the season. In the game, Clemente also moved past Mike Gielen '89 (1,104 points) into 12th place on the school's all-time scoring list.
The game was a tug-of-war affair early, with neither team asserting itself. With six minutes remaining in the half, Harvard was tied with Colgate, 27-27.
Colgate ended the half with a flurry, however, outscoring the Crimson 19-5 in the last 5:47 before the break. The Red Raiders took a 46-32 lead at halftime with apparent control of the game.
