Is there a scenario where he plays 2 more years at Harvard?

No, I'm pretty he's got one year left at Harvard.

As in conference outcomes seem to be getting tighter, FT shooting makes a difference.

When Bryce returned to the lineup I predicted that I expected Harvard's FT% to improve - and it did. Crimson shot 76.2% with Bryce. I had also projected that the one player who was struggling the most from the line - Justin Bassey - would improve with more limited playing time. Justin shot 70% in conference compared to under 60% OOC. Both were a far cry from 81.6% in each of his first two seasons. Similarly, Christian Juzang's 79.7% this past season was a drop from 88.7% the prior year.

If that weren't enough, Seth Towns takes the second most FTA after Bryce and shot 80.5% and 82.1%.

Harvard could be the best FT shooting team in the nation! This year only two squads shot 80%, Incarnate Word ((81%) and Hofstra (80.2%). At 76.2% Harvard would be in the top 20. What a turnaround from a few years ago when Harvard was the second worst FT shooting team in the nation.

Looking forward, top recruit Chris Ledlum appears to be a 55% FT shooter (NMH & AAU). On the other hand, Ledlum has been described as "[t]he most impactful player I have seen during my time at Cushing. He takes over games on a consistent basis against some of the best teams in the country." James Cormier, formerly assistant coach at Dartmouth.

Throwback to Amaker's early Harvard teams, where FT shooting was a major strength.
