Yale at Harvard
Where: Lavietes Pavilion, Cambridge, Mass.
When: Today, 7 p.m.
Records: Yale 7-12 (1-1 Ivy league); Harvard 10-6 (2-0)
Scouting Harvard: The Crimson opened Ivy play by sweeping Dartmouth but it didn’t come easy. In the first meeting in Hanover, N.H., Harvard trailed 43-42 at halftime but shot a blistering 60 percent from the field in the second half to escape with a 75-65 win. Two weeks later in Boston, the Crimson rallied from a seven-point deficit with 1:10 remaining in the second half to force overtime and then outscored the Big Green 20-15 in the extra period to win 82-77. Wesley Saunders (16.3 ppg.) leads the Crimson in scoring. Harvard leads the Ivy League in scoring offense (69.9 ppg.), field goal percentage (.478) and three-point field goal percentage (.403).
Scouting Yale: The Bulldogs begin a four-game Ivy League road trip after defeating Brown in overtime last week. Ten
players all saw at least 12 minutes of action in the game in Yale’s 76-64 win to rebound from a loss at Brown the week before. Austin Morgan (11.5 ppg.) continues to lead the Bulldogs in scoring. He was named the Ivy League co-player of the week after scoring 16 points in Saturday’s win. Freshman Justin Sears earned co-rookie of the week honors after leading Yale with 18 points and eight rebounds against the Bears. The Bulldogs lead the Ivy League in rebounding margin (+3.8) and offensive rebounds (13.0 per game) and are second in scoring offense (66.4). Harvard swept the season series last year. The Crimson has won three straight at Lavietes Pavilion. Yale’s last win there was an 87-66 decision in 2009.
