So too, has the undefeated streak of Harvard, who put forth a valiant effort, but were simply outplayed by their New England neighbors, losing by a final score of 67-53.
Leading the charge for UConn was sophomore point guard Jeremy Lamb, who scored 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and three steals. Keeping pace for the Crimson was junior forward Kyle Casey, who bagged 12 points and five rebounds with one steal and one block.
Connecticut, who will next play the Holy Cross Crusaders a week from Sunday (Dec. 18), improve to 8-1 with the victory. Harvard, who next faces the Boston U. Terriers on Saturday afternoon, drops to 8-1 in defeat.
