Harvard Vs. Brown: Crimson Look To Avenge First Ivy Loss

Harvard hosts Brown in Ivy League action on Friday night at the Lavietes Pavilion.

The Harvard Crimson lost their first Ivy League game of the year the last time they took the court, and they'll look to avenge that loss on Friday night when they host the Brown Bears.

It's the second time these two teams have played in 2012, as Harvard upended Brown 68-59 in Providence on Jan. 28. Kyle Casey dropped 20 points for the Crimson the first time around, and added eight rebounds as part of Harvard's domination on the class.

Harvard stands alone atop the Ivy League standings at 7-1, having been defeated by Princeton last Saturday, a loss that dropped them from both major polls. The Crimsom have floated towards the back-end of the top 25 for several weeks this season, and hope to climb back into the rankings by starting a new win streak against Brown.

The Bears enter the contest with just one conference win, and are ahead of only Dartmouth in the Ivy League standings. They have one just one road game on the season, a 67-60 victory at Bryant College.

The tip is set for 7:00 p.m. EST at the Lavietes Pavilion.
