Harvard scorches Dartmouth, 80-50
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) Harvard returned to Ivy League play in convincing fashion, completing a season sweep of Dartmouth, 80-50 Sunday.
The Crimson sandwiched non-conference losses to Connecticut and Florida Atlantic around a 61-45 January 11 win at home against the Big Green, but was even more impressive on the road.
After struggling to shoot 23 percent at Florida Atlantic, Harvard shot a scorching 65.9 percent (29 of 44) and was even better from long range, hitting 10 of 14 3-point attempts (71.4 percent).
Harvard (15-3, 2-0 Ivy) had four players in double figures led by Laurent Rivard’s 15 point effort on 4 of 5 shooting from the field. Brandyn Curry and Siyani Chambers both scored 14 points and Steve Moundou-Missi added another 12.
Dartmouth (7-9, 0-2) struggled from the field, connecting on just 20 of 53 shots (37.7 percent). Connor Boehm and Malik Gill led the offense with 16 points apiece.
