    After playing his best basketball of the 2012-13 season during a two-game stretch in which Harvard beat Penn and Princeton on consecutive nights, averaging 17.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 8.0 blocks per game on that weekend in mid-February, Harvard center Kenyatta Smith was able to earn more minutes in the Crimson’s front court rotation.

    Given their overall non-conference schedule and the strength of it, Harvard’s games at Colorado and UConn were contests circled by many as important games for the Crimson. Why?

    In Ivy League basketball circles, which soon expanded to national basketball circles at the conclusion of the 2013 NCAA Tournament, all of the talk during the summer months revolved around Harvard. Rightfully so, to an extent. The Crimson returned virtually their entire team, along with welcoming back Kyle Casey and Brandyn Curry. They were the…

    Jonah Travis, Tommy Amaker

    In the most highly anticipated season in Harvard basketball history — in fact, perhaps in Ivy League history — where there is already speculation of the Crimson beginning the season ranked in the Top 25, all but winning the Ivy League, and even making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, the pressure is also…

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Harvard v Vanderbilt

    The hardest thing about being a professional sportswriter is maintaining objectivity. Other than that, it’s pretty much hot tubs, free beer, and living in the penthouse apartment. But that objectivity, when we all have rooting interests, is a bear. Case in point: Odds are that Philly.com’s Jonathan Tannenwald — an Ivy League traditionalist in his…
