On Tuesday evening, Harvard men's basketball honored its six outgoing seniors and announced its captains for the upcoming 2019-2020 campaign.
The Crimson conclude its season with a 19-12 overall record and an appearance in the NIT second round for the first time in program history.
If Harvard could win yet again on the road, over the 11-point favorite Wolfpack, the Crimson would advance to within a game of the semifinal round, which will be hosted at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
But with three minutes left in its season, the Crimson found the grit and composure to fight back on both ends of the floor, riding cagey point guard play and clutch free throw shooting from Bryce Aiken to a 71-68 win, a signature moment of the 2018-2019 season.
Harvard men's basketball drew the sixth seed in the NIT Opener and will face No. 3 Georgetown on Wednesday night. The game will be played on Gerogetown's campus at the 2,500-seat McDonough Arena and will be televised nationally on ESPN2 at 7PM.
