I suspect that in his heart Amaker loves this team because the defense is so nasty. Towns looking very smooth offensively both passing and scoring, Johnson not missing from outside certainly perks things up on the other end of the floor. Yale's D not too impressive and they are turning the ball over at an alarming rate.

Crimson go cold from 3, 0-6 on their last 6, Yale holds onto the ball better, and the lead is down to 6 with 1:04 left.

Yale cuts it to 4 at the end of the half, Phills embarrasses Aiken with a steal at the end after Aiken tries to embarrass him in the open court.

The Towns-Onye battle within the game has also been entertaining, with Towns getting some nice scoring moves in.

0 free throws for Harvard. Again. That ‘s a problem we have to fix.

They're letting Lewis score in the post and not fouling him. Not too many drives to the rim, so not too many chances to draw shooting fouls. Yalies drive a lot, although Harvard getting a lot of the block/charge calls with their quick feet.

Harvard up 5 with about 12:00 left. Yale showing some excellent ball movement and cutting, while Harvard looks a bit lost on offense the last few minutes, especially when Lewis is out. Still, the margin is bigger than it was at halftime, so not so bad for the Crimson.

I don't understand why Harvard doesn't get the ball back with their basket wiped out as a "do over" given the shot-clock error.

Hadn't realized Bassey was such a playmaker.

Tied with 6:25 left. Yale swarming on D, deflecting balls and getting easy buckets.

Still tied with 3:56 left. Not much scoring. Towns with a couple of forced-looking trey attempts. Lewis is still the only reliable option in the post for getting a good look.

Can't understand how anybody lets Copeland drive with his right hand down the right side of the lane. He is pretty lethal when he does that.

Phills fouls out hitting Bassey putting up a trey. Horrible play, but Bassey did a good job drawing the contact. He's been good tonight.

Oni takes a lot of bad shots and Lewis is awful from the FT line. Ugly game.

After Bassey hits all three, Harvard lies in wait for Copeland on the drive to the right side of the lane and forces him to turn it over for a breakaway opportunity. Good awareness by the Crimson.

Towns clanks two free throws, Yale takes a tough shot in the post that misses, Harvard bleeds the clock and gets a brick attempt from Bassey way outside, now Yale down 3 with the ball with :55 left and Onyi misses the trey.

Yale's last timeout with 12.5 seconds, down three. Harvard doesn't seem to be thinking foul.

Onyi's trey attempt blocked, not sure who got it. Towns closes out with a couple of FTs. Excellent road win for the Crimson. Entertaining game.

Defense and Chris Lewis. Harvard's guards got tired and finished 2-19 on 3's after starting 5-6. Glad to see Bryce back and moving well. Rusty though, kept losing control of his own dribble. Great weekend for Bryce to work himself back in.

Looking more and more like Chris Lewis is the best big in the League- as a sophomore. Double-double (16-11) and held Yale's only 2 non-guards to 2-12 in shooting. You know Brown is going to double him after Dartmouth's Emery went off for 18 pts on 7-8 tonight.

Despite my preference for Egi over Welsh, gotta give Henry credit for two efficient games.

Oh, and great block on Oni trey inside of 10 seconds. Bassey? Towns?

Onto Providence. 3-0 after two games on the road. 4-0 after 3 road games is meaningful.

Finally, what's with that shot clock call? With Harvard on offense shot clock erroneous reset on a miss. Djuricic, obviously watching a new 30 second shot clock posts and scores, but not only is basket removed (understandable), but Yale gets the ball on shot clock violation. That's plain wrong. If the clock was erroneously reset and the offensive team relies on it, why would they be penalized. Go back to the point where the clock reset and play on with the offense losing the basket but not the possession.

Winning UGLY!

HDG, that's exactly what I said about the clock business at 8:34PM above.
