Harvard’s fast start leaves TCU in dust
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Laurent Rivard drilled four 3-pointers in the first 13 minutes of the game to spark Harvard to a 71-50 win over TCU and claim the Great Alaska Shootout tournament title Saturday.
Rivard, who became the all-time Harvard leader in 3-point shooting by drilling five 3-pointers against Wisconsin-Green Bay in the semifinals, was 5 of 11 from behind the arc against the Horned Frogs and finished with a team-high 15 points.
The Crimson (7-1) raced to a 33-10 lead with 7:31 remaining in the first half and maintained that lead at intermission.
Sivani Chambers added 10 points for Harvard and Jonah Travis and Evan Cummins came off the bench to add 11 and 10 points, respectively.
Kyan Anderson led all scorers with 20 points for the Horned Frogs (4-3). Jarvis Ray added another 13 points.
TCU struggled from the field, connecting on just 14 of 56 shots.
