New-Look Harvard Bests BU, 74-63


Entering Thursday, Harvard had been a bit disappointing, as shown by its 4-6 record. For a team that had a lot of promise, it just hadn’t performed, prompting head coach Tommy Amaker to change things up.

Amaker decided to start his reserves, and it paid off, as the Crimson topped cross-town rival Boston University, 74-63.

Harvard jumped out to a quick 10-3 advantage – sparked by eight points from Weisner Perez – and took a 36-34 lead into the break.

The Crimson extended its advantage to double digits at the 10:55 mark of the second courtesy of a Christian Juzang trey as they lead 52-42.

Harvard, which shot 55.3 percent from the field, led by as much as 16 down the stretch en route to victory.

Sophomore Max Mahoney canned a game-high 16 points to pace the Terriers and freshman Javante McCoy tossed in 15.

Perez and Towns led the Crimson, who were without leading scorer Bryce Aiken (17.6 PPG) in this one due to a minor knee injury, with 12 points apiece.

BU is back in action on Saturday, Dec. 29 at 7 p.m. at home against Army (7-4) as it will begin Patriot League play.

Harvard looks to run its win streak to three games as it hits the road to face George Washington (6-6) on Saturday at 12 p.m.

More Money, More Problems.

I took a casual poll on whether or not college athletes should be paid or compensated when their respective university uses their image or likeness. The results were not as I expected. Out of about 100 people who responded, 72 of them said that college athletes should not be paid. This sample included people who had played and who were passionate about college athletics, people who were recently out of college and people who have been graduated for a long time. I personally voted that they should be compensated for their image being used for marketing or recruiting and in a way, they are with scholarships. But we all know that scholarships can only help so much.
