In the closing minutes of the first half, the Harvard Crimson were able to go on a 9-2 run to finish a somewhat poor defensive half of basketball and only trail the Princeton Tigers 33-32 at halftime.
Kyle Casey, as he has all season, is leading the Crimson offensive attack with 12 points to go along with a game leading six rebounds. Fellow big man Keith Wright has six points while the Crimson backcourt of Brandyn Curry and Oliver McNally have a combined total of 12 points. Laurent Rivard, the third guard in Harvard's three guard scheme, remains scoreless. The Crimson as a team close the half shooting a respectable 52% from the field.
Tigers forward Patrick Summers is matching Casey step for step, as he to has 12 points through the first half. He did however struggle at the end of the half with three consecutive misses. Ian Hummer is also having himself a nice half with nine points. The team is shooting 48% from the field.
The clear advantage for the Tigers in this one has been their ability to shoot the three ball. Princeton is 5-8 (62.5%) from beyond the arc while Harvard is a woeful three for 3-9 (33.3%) from three point land. If they want to pull away in this one, the Crimson have got to shoot better from long range.
