CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After helping the Harvard men’s basketball team clinch a share of the program’s second consecutive Ivy League title, junior forward Kyle Casey has been tabbed the Ancient Eight Co-Player of the Week, the conference office announced.
He followed that performance with 11 points, making 4-of-7 field goals against the Big Red, as Harvard clinched a share of the conference crown with the win.
Harvard concluded its regular season 26-4 overall and 12-2 in the Ivy League. The Crimson’s 26 victories mark the most in program history for a single season and its 12 Ivy wins ties the team’s best conference record.
Harvard will await Tuesday evening's matchup between Penn (11-2 Ivy) and Princeton in Princeton, N.J. A Princeton win would clinch the outright Ivy League title for Harvard, as well as the NCAA tournament's automatic berth, while a Penn victory would force a one-game playoff between the Quakers and Crimson at a to-be-determined date and location.
