Each Thursday, The Crimson will compile a series of unique statistics about Harvard's sports scene. Welcome to the Magic of Numbers—without the problem sets. We'll do the math for you.


126—Number of miles separating Cambridge and Hanover, N.H. The Harvard men’s hockey team takes on Dartmouth this weekend in a home-and-home series. The Crimson will host the Big Green tomorrow at home then travel to Hanover on Saturday.

34—Saves made by Harvard assistant captain goaltender Kyle Richter in last weekend’s 1-0 loss to Princeton.

8—National rank for the Crimson in scoring defense.

2.17—Number of goals allowed by Harvard per game. Despite its stellar defense, the Crimson is just 2-4 on the season.


7—National ranking for the Minnesota women’s hockey team. Harvard flies out to Minneapolis for a two-game series against the Golden Gophers this weekend.

8 — Number of total goals scored against No. 9/10 Dartmouth by the Crimson last weekend. In its two games against the Big Green, Harvard upset the favorites both times, 5-3 and 3-2, respectively.

14—Number of times Minnesota and Harvard have faced off, with the first coming in the 1997-98 season.


24—Points scored by junior co-captain Keith Wright in the Harvard men’s basketball 69-66 victory over Bryant yesterday afternoon. Sophomore Christian Webster stroked a three-pointer with 23 seconds left to give the Crimson the win.

16.8—Average points scored per game for Wright so far this season. The junior is having a breakout season, and his play will be critical for a young squad looking to capture the program’s first Ivy title.
