Women's Basketball Tops Previously-Undefeated Yale in Home Win

Harvard dealt Yale its first loss in Ivy League play this season at Lavietes Pavilion Friday evening, surpassing the Bulldogs by a final score of 66-57 in a game that featured four competitive quarters of action. Making an infrequent appearance in the Crimson’s (12-6; 3-2 Ivy) starting lineup, co-captain and junior forward Rachel Levy led Harvard’s charge against Yale (14-4; 4-1 Ivy) on both ends of the court. In 34 minutes of play — the most Levy has ever played in one game for the Crimson — she did it all.
