The Scouting Report
The men's basketball team has been strong at home, putting up a 6–1 record in front of Crimson faithful behind sophomore Wesley Saunders's 16.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. Freshman Jimmy Vesey has made a big impression on offense for the men's hockey team, scoring nine points so far this season, including two goals and one assist in his first college game. In women's athletics, the Crimson basketball team stands atop the Ivy League after averaging more than 70 points a game and shooting the lights out with their 41.5% three-point percentage and carefully concealed slingshots. Seniors Kelsey Romatoski and Kaitlin Spurling lead a women's hockey squad that’s dominating the ice with a 14–1–1 record that includes a 9–0 win at Union.
Championships and distinguished alumni are both part of Harvard's 150-year athletic tradition that traces back to a wrestling match between sophomores and freshmen in 1780. Beyond their four NCAA championships in men's hockey, women's lacrosse, women's rowing, and fencing, Harvard has produced 141 national team championships and numerous Olympians who have faced off against elite competition and in almost every time zone. In addition to winning three conference titles in a row, the men's football team went 9–1 last year, and has won at least seven games in each of the past 15 years, an Ivy League record. The Harvard Crimson women's tennis program accounts for 18 ivy league championships, laying claim to five of them in the past 12 years.
