Junior Kyle Casey (11 points) led the Crimson to a 20-19 advantage midway through the first half. But thanks to a number of Harvard mishaps on the glass and defensive end, Holy Cross went on a 9-4 run to grab a 28-24 lead with 5:19 to play in the half.
Freshman forward Steve Moundou-Missi and junior point guard Brandyn Curry led the Crimson on a 10-4 run to close the half.
Casey, who leads all scorers with 11 points on six shots, went down late in the first half after appearing to be poked in the eye.
The Crusaders have been led by do-it-all wing R.J. Evans, who has eight points on eight shots. But Holy Cross has done most of its damage on the glass, outrebounding the Crimson, 14-11.
