Harvard Vs. Columbia: Crimson Look To Rebound After Disappointing Loss

Harvard looks to bounce back Friday at Columbia after falling to Penn this past weekend.

Now just one-half game ahead of Penn in the Ivy League standings, but tied in the loss column, the Harvard Crimson look to rebound Friday at Columbia after a disappointing home defeat to Penn.

After winning its first seven Ivy League outings, Harvard has now dropped two out of five. The Crimson took a 28-game home winning streak into Saturday's meeting with Penn, and it looked like they would extend the home dominance, as they took a 51-44 lead with five minutes left. But Penn stormed back, pouring in 11 of the game's final 15 points to take control of a 55-54 decision.

Columbia has lost five straight to fall to 3-9 in the Ivy League. The Lions are paced by Brian Barbour's 15.5 points and 4.4 assists per game.

The two teams met at Harvard on Feb. 4, with the Crimson prevailing in a closer-than-expected 57-52 affair.
