CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's basketball team will welcome three student-athletes from the Class of 2018 to the program this fall; Andre Chatfield, Chris Egi and Zach Yoshor.

"We are excited to have Andre, Chris and Zach join our program," head coach Tommy Amaker stated. "Each has succeeded at both the individual and team level and will contribute to our basketball program as we continue to strive for excellence."

The trio will join a Crimson program which has won four straight Ivy League championships and earned three consecutive trips to the NCAA tournament. The 2013-14 team went 27-5 overall and 13-1 against the Ancient Eight, setting new program records for overall wins and conference victories.
