Tommy Amaker: ‘I am where I want to be’

As has been his custom after each season, Tommy Amaker met with the media Monday at Harvard’s Murr Center to discuss the Crimson’s campaign. But Amaker also addressed his decision to return to the Ivy League school after he surfaced as a potential candidate for the job vacancy at Boston College. Amaker’s seventh season at Harvard produced a program-record 27 wins and was highlighted...

15 Thoughts from the Harvard Game ☆

It’s been nearly a week since the dream died and the season ended. I haven’t offered up my thoughts about the Harvard game for a couple of reasons, many of them being I was writing about many other college basketball games over the weekend and the site was migrating to the new form. There is no way that I can’t talk about the Harvard loss. There is no real point to recapping...

Harvard not rebuilding

The Harvard men’s basketball program will be in a good place next season regardless of any changes that take place. The greatest season in Crimson history (27-5) ended in a hard-fought loss to perennial power Michigan State in the third round of the NCAA tournament at Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. The Crimson rallied from a 16-point second-half deficit to take a 62-60 lead...

Michigan State Holds Off Late Harvard Rally To Advance To Sweet 16

Harvard’s season came to an end Saturday night with a third-round loss in the NCAA tournament to fourth-seeded Michigan State, 80-73. The Crimson overcame a 14-point halftime deficit to claw their way back into the game, taking their first lead on Laurent Rivard’s 3-pointer with 7:11 to play, but the Spartans were able to overcome the late scare from the No. 12 Crimson.

Spartans hold off Harvard, advance to Sweet 16

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- For 18 seconds, it was happening. Harvard owned basketball, too. Laurent Rivard made a 3-pointer from the corner, flashed his 3-point goggles toward an unhinged group of Crimson fans and ran down the court. The Ivy Leaguers had overcome a 16-point deficit to take a two-point lead over a Michigan State team that always comes up big at March Madness. The next...

No. 12 Harvard beats No. 5 Cincinnati but doesn’t upset

The kids from Cambridge, MA did it again – they pulled an “upset.” In similar fashion to last year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament, the Harvard Crimson defeated a higher ranked seed in the opening round. In 2013, it was the 3-seed New Mexico Lobos that went home early. This year, Harvard ousted 5-seed Cincinnati in a game that did not feel like an upset. 6-foot-5, guard...

Harvard Closes The Book On Bearcats; Will Play Michigan State Next

It was almost destined to happen. The Harvard Crimson were the fashionable choice around the nation’s office pools to pull off the “12-5” upset and advance to the Round of 32 at the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Even President Obama had Harvard in his bracket, although he may have been biased (J.D. magna cum laude, 1991). Sure enough, the No. 12 Crimson got the job done...

Harvard wants to 'make a statement' in NCAAs

There was a celebration. At the final buzzer, Siyani Chambers leaped into the arms of teammate Brandyn Curry. And Kyle Casey described the moment — Harvard 61, Cincinnati 57 — as "pure ecstasy." But an instant later, there was consolation. Casey and Chambers were kneeling beside an opponent, Bearcats senior forward Justin Jackson, who had crumpled to the ground, crying...

12 Seeded Harvard Crimson Upset Cincinnati Bearcats

The Crimson had Wesley Saunders, Siyani Chambers, and Laurent Rivard all scored in double figures not to mention Steve Moundou-Missi had nine points, so it was a total team...

Casey relishing this tourney time

For about 45 minutes Sunday night, Kyle Casey was tense. Seated with his hands folded in his lap atop shaky knees, Casey watched the NCAA tournament selection show with the rest of his Harvard teammates. The 6-foot-7 forward’s eye were fixated on the television mounted on the wall and he grew more animated as the matchups were announced. When No. 5 Saint Louis was on the screen...

Harvard’s Laurent Rivard long on talent and guts

From the time they met, John Carroll was trying to explain his affinity for the 3-point shot to Laurent Rivard. In Carroll’s playing days, he never quite understood it. The paint always seemed like a moshpit — all the fighting for rebounds, muscling up shots, ugly collisions at the rim, turf wars on the block. Basketball in the free throw lane was messy business. But life...
