Another 2nd half choke down the stretch. Blew a 10-point lead at home with a good crowd. They tightened up big time. Missed tons of free throws, front ends of 1-and-1s, open threes, short-armed jumpers. Nobody did what they were good at doing and then they couldn't get stops. Even the ESPN3 announcer (Mike Rubin) suggested the bright lights of the Pitz got to them. After Spieth hit a big three I thought maybe they weren't going to let Yale happen again, and then Brown went ice cold. Really disappointing to not be able to hold these leads.
Disappointing. Harvard was 23-24 from the line, Brown 12-22 in the second half, 18-28 for the game, 1-7 during Harvard's run. Harvard's talent is impressive, 5 guys who have starts for Harvard in the past, did not get off the bench. Had to have a complete game to win this one, and could have. 6 foe 23 from 3 won't cut it. Okolie had a good first half, only Spieth played 2 halves and he had a poor night at the FT line.
