The Harvard and Yale men’s basketball teams' Saturday matchup—a 72-66 Crimson victory—was a chippy affair from start to finish.
The Harvard men’s basketball team outlasted its biggest Ivy competition, 69-57, in front of a packed crowd on Saturday evening.
After a first half that featured 11 lead changes, Columbia holds a 38-34 advantage over the Harvard men’s basketball team at Levien Gymnasium in New York.
The Harvard men’s basketball team got off to a rough start in its home contest against Dartmouth on Jan. 26, ending the first half down by nine after a 7-for-21 shooting effort. The only thing preventing the team from being blown out on its home floor was the performance of sophomore forward Jonah Travis.
After a loss to Dartmouth last Saturday handed the Harvard women’s basketball team an early Ivy League loss, the Crimson will try to get back on track this weekend.
When the Crimson found itself still trailing by double digits with fewer than two minutes to go, a bleak outcome seemed all but certain. But co-captain Christian Webster had other plans.
