With Boston's pro teams off Tuesday, Harvard basketball is the Boston-area television option on a night filled with college basketball.
College basketball: Harvard vs. St. Joseph's, 8 p.m., NBC Sports Network: The Crimson and the Hawks are both off to 2-1 starts, but they've had very different seasons: Harvard's two wins come against Division III MIT and Manhattan, with the loss a buzzer-beater against UMass. Meanwhile, St. Joe's has a win over a ranked team after beating No. 20 Notre Dame 79-70 in overtime behind 21 points from Ronald Roberts Jr., before losing to a good Florida State in the finals of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. Siyani Chambers has been great for Harvard early, as the freshman point guard is second on the team with 12.3 points and first with 5.7 assists, filling in admirably for Brandyn Curry, who had to leave the team due to an academic scandal.
