The Harvard women's basketball team looks to right its course against Central Connecticut State University, taking on the Blue Devils at Lavietas Pavilion at 7 p.m. tonight.
The Crimson (1-4, 0-0 Ivy) dropped its last game at Fairfield, shooting poorly from the field in a 92-73 loss.
The Blue Devils (1-2) are coming off their only win of the season, a 71- 68 victory over Niagara at the Cornell Tournament on Saturday. Senior guard Nikki Flocco scored 22 points in the win, after being shutdown in the previous game by host Cornell.
While Harvard ran through the individual match-ups today, the Crimson wants to focus on putting together a consistent effort without worrying too greatly about specific players or Blue Devil tendencies.
Consistency has been lacking thus far according to senior guard Lisa Kowal.
"We've had moments where we played great, and some moments where we weren't so great," Kowal said. "We want to put together 40 strong minutes of basketball."
The Crimson has had many bright spots this season, but has yet to take advantage of some impressive individual performances.
Sophomore center Sarah Johnson, coming off the bench against Fairfield last Saturday, had a strong game, finishing with 14 points. At one stretch during her 15 minutes of action, Johnson hit five baskets in a row to help carry Harvard.
