Harvard Rallies to Beat Visiting Princeton 67-64 in Ivy League Basketball

Kyle Casey scored 20 points to help Harvard University rally from a 10-point deficit to earn a 67-64 men’s college basketball win against Princeton University and set a school record for victories in a season.

Princeton had handed the Crimson its only Ivy League conference loss this season, beating Harvard 70-62 on Feb. 11.

Brandyn Curry scored 15 points, Oliver McNally had 13 and Keith Wright added 12 for the Crimson (24-3, 10-1 Ivy League) at Lavietes Pavilion in Boston.

Ian Hummer and Douglas Davis each had 14 points for Princeton (15-11, 6-4 Ivy League), which had a 33-32 halftime advantage.

The 24 wins are a season record for Harvard, which has a 28-game home winning streak that is the second longest in the nation.

Harvard finishes its home schedule tonight against the University of Pennsylvania. A victory would clinch at least a share of the Ivy League title for the Crimson.
