Harvard Vs. Princeton Final Score: Crimson Get Their Revenge, Win 67-64

The Harvard Crimson (24-3, 10-1 IVY) took a pivotal step in wrapping up the Ivy League conference title by defeating the Princeton Tigers (15-11, 6-4 IVY) by a score of 67-64 on Friday night at Lavietes Pavilion. The Crimson's only conference loss came back on Feb. 11 to this same Tigers team.

Junior forward Kyle Casey led all scorers with 20 points and also collected a game high eight rebounds in 29 minutes on the floor. Point guard Brandyn Curry had a nice night as well as he came in with 15 points and six assists in 34 minutes on the floor. Curry was the lone bright spot for the Crimson from three point land (66.6%), a category the team struggled with all night long with just a combined effort of 25% from beyond the arc.

Seniors Keith Wright (12 points, six rebounds) and Oliver McNally (13 points) were vital contributors to Crimson the win as well.

Senior point guard Douglas Davis led the Tigers attack with 14 points and five assists in 37 minutes of play. The Tiger front court of Ian Hummer (14 points) and Patrick Saunders (12 points) troubled the Crimson at times, but in the end it wasn't enough to top the Ivy League leading Harvard.

The Crimson are back in action tomorrow afternoon, as they will take on second place Penn Quakers (16-11, 8-2) at Lavietes Pavilion at 7:00 p.m. EDT. The Crimson won the first meeting between the two back on Feb. 10 by a score of 56-50. With the win, Harvard would inch closer towards claiming the Ivy League title, and an NCAA tournament berth.
