Harvard is all about the numbers. Number one school in the country with 6,400 undergrads, 3,500 courses, three million volumes in Widener, 12 undergraduate houses, and 41 Division I sports teams. One basketball NCAA tournament run, two Winklevii, three women’s soccer Ivy League championships in the past four years, and a handful of 2012 Olympians.
Although the Harvard women’s basketball team already played its first Ivy League game of the year against Dartmouth on Jan. 14, this weekend marks the official opening weekend of Ancient Eight play.
In Saturday’s first-round NCAA matchup that also served as a fight for city bragging rights, the No. 12 Boston University Terriers snapped the Harvard women’s soccer team’s 10-game unbeaten streak with a convincing 3-0 victory at Nickerson Field.
Hours before the men’s soccer team emerged victorious in a nail-biter, the fans at Soldiers Field Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium witnessed another dramatic win Sunday.
