Amiracle on Ice
FRIDAY, MARCH 8
Brown at Princeton, 4:00 PM, ESPNU.
As Harvard men’s basketball seeks its first Ivy League title and NCAA Tournament berth since the 2015 season, the road has been anything but smooth thus far. The Crimson has been dealt a rash of injuries to the starting lineup and much of its junior class.
Neither defending Ancient Eight player of the year Seth Towns nor stalwart point guard Bryce Aiken has taken the floor yet this season. In addition to missing Towns and Aiken, fellow junior forward Chris Lewis was sidelined for three games, and Christian Juzang missed last weekend’s nail-biting loss to Vermont, the latest to catch the injury bug.
This weekend, Harvard women’s basketball will have the unenviable task of trying to rebound from its worst weekend of the season. Unfortunately for the Crimson (13-8, 5-3 Ivy), it will have to do so on the road, which has been the root of most of Harvard’s problems.
