CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Columbia men’s basketball team saw its Ivy League Tournament
Harvard drilled a trio of early treys in the first half to take an 11-4 lead just under five minutes in. An 11-2 Crimson run made it 35-18 with 7:16 remaining in the period. Columbia tried to make up ground with seven unanswered, capped by a pair of Rodney Hunter free throws. After a 3-point play from Harvard, Patrick Tapé’s dunk with 37 seconds left made it 45-34 in favor of the Crimson after 20 minutes of action.
The Lions trimmed their deficit to nine on three occasions but could pull no closer. Christian Juzang’s trifecta with 5:57 left in the game put the Crimson in front 82-57 as they went on to earn a share of the Ivy League Championship with Penn.
Harvard held a 39-17 advantage on the glass and dished out 24 assists on 37 made field goals. The Crimson shot 62.7 percent from the floor and knocked down 17-of-28 (60.7 percent) from 3-point range.
Corey Johnson led four Harvard players in double-figures with 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc. Seth Towns added 13 points and 10 rebounds.
