Notebook: Free Throws, Team Play Power Basketball Past Cornell

“I just thought that we showed great composure and were incredibly efficient down the stretch offensively,” Amaker said. “Big shots by Seth and Danilo [Djuricic] and tremendous free throw shooting down the stretch. Very, very proud of that.”


In a season that’s seen plenty of notable individual performances from players such as Towns, Lewis, and a now injured Bryce Aiken, Saturday’s win for Harvard came from an all-around balanced effort.

In total four different players scored in double digits, while sophomore Christian Juzang tied a career-high with 12 points.

“I’m really pleased with how [Juzang’s] been able to adopt the role he’s in now based on Bryce and Rio being a freshman,” Amaker said. “Christian is a guy that has to shoulder the responsibility of being our main quarterback and I’m very pleased with his growth and development at this stage.”


The sophomore also added a career-high six rebounds to go with three assists.

Despite the late press working to slow the Crimson’s offense, Harvard passed the ball well against the Cornell defense. In total Harvard assisted on 17 of its 25 made bucket with Towns chipping in a career-high six.

Coming off the bench, freshman forward Danilo Djuricic added 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting from the field
