“As always, obviously, he’s shooting the ball very well, finishing at the free throw line, and just orchestrating the whole thing for the team,” Rivard said. “He turned the ball over, but that’s expected. He has the ball in his hand for most of the game.”
Although Harvard posted an impressive 20 assists to the Owls’ seven, the Crimson turned the ball over 17 times—just one fewer giveaway than Rice.
“I was not happy with how many times we turned the ball over,” Amaker said. “But certainly we got everybody in, a lot of guys played important minutes.”
The Crimson boasted a balanced scoring effort on the night, with 10 of the 11 players who saw action adding at least one point in the victory.
“It’s nice when you invest in something and get the kind of return you expect or you feel you deserve,” Amaker said. “I know Rice is missing a few pieces to their puzzle. It’s been a tough stretch for their team and their program, but we focused on us today, on how we were going to regroup and respond.”
