Harvard wins Ivy opener 57-46 over Dartmouth

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) Corbin Miller scored 11 straight points to stake Harvard to an early lead it was able to ride to a 57-46 victory over Dartmouth on Saturday night for a program-record 11th straight victory over the Big Green.

Harvard (10-3, 1-0 Ivy) led 27-20 at halftime with the help of Miller’s streak of points that included a trio of 3-pointers.

Malik Gill’s layup got Dartmouth within five points with 12:51 left. Neither team scored again until Kenyatta Smith’s basket at 9:07 to start a 9-0 run that Miller finished with another 3. Dartmouth (6-7, 0-1) went without a field goal for nearly 10 minutes, and when it did finally pick up a basket, it trailed by eight points with three minutes left and would only get one point closer thereafter.

Connor Boehm scored 16 points for Dartmouth. Alex Mitola was held to six, ending a streak of 16 straight double-figure games.
