Harvard Vs. Columbia Final Score: Crimson Defeat Lions In OT, 77-70

New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin visited Francis S. Levien Gym Friday night to watch his former team, the Harvard Crimson, survive an overtime scare from Columbia, 75-74.

With the win, Harvard moved to 11-2 in the Ivy League and remain a half-game ahead of Pennsylvania for the coveted automatic bid. Harvard is looking to overcome a 65-year NCAA Tournament drought by winning the league outright. Last season, Harvard was co-champions with Princeton, but lost the one-game tiebreaker for the league's automatic bid.

Kyle Casey led Harvard with 19 points and four steals, while Oliver McNally sealed the deal in overtime by sinking seven of eight free throws in the final minute.



Brian Barbour led Columbia with 23 points and five assists. Harvard's Keith Wright scored 16 points.
