Harvard would not be as lucky this game, as Choh sank the free throw and gave Brown the 73-72 victory.
Riding an eight-game win streak, including six in a row on the road, the Crimson (13-4, 2-0 Ivy) will visit the Quakers (7-8, 0-2 Ivy) on Friday and the Tigers (8-7, 2-0) on Saturday as it continues its five-game road trip and looks to stay undefeated in conference play.
