As Holidays Approach, Alarm Bells Ring for Men’s Basketball
Ten healthy players are all that remain at the moment for Harvard men’s basketball. The two-week break without competition — mandated for finals — could not come at a better time for the Crimson. On most evenings at Lavietes Pavilion, Harvard would likely be pleased with a 10-point win with such a reduced roster. Monday, however, was the latest bump in a non-conference schedule that has been far from friendly for the Crimson (6-4), as the team struggled to pull away from Division III Babson in a game that Harvard eventually won by a 74-64 score.
