Christian Webster ’13 has completed his first season as a member of Tommy Amaker’s coaching staff.
With Webster on board, the 2013-14 Crimson set program records for overall wins (27) and conference victories (13) en route to the team's fourth consecutive Ivy League title and a third straight appearance in the NCAA tournament. During March Madness, the 12th-seeded Crimson knocked off fifth-seeded Cincinnati in the tournament's second round, and nearly pulled off an upset of fourth-seeded Michigan State to reach the Sweet 16. Harvard also won the Great Alaska Shootout along the way, and a record six Crimson were named to the All-Ivy League teams, including player of the year Wesley Saunders '15.
Webster returned to Cambridge after graduating in May of 2013 as the winningest student-athlete in program history. The Washington, D.C., native captained the 2012-13 squad to a 20-10 overall record en route to its third straight Ivy League championship and the program’s first ever win in the NCAA Tournament, a 68-62 defeat of third-seeded New Mexico in the second round. Webster finished the year averaging 8.4 ppg and 2.9 rpg while playing 33.6 minutes.
Webster’s career record stands at 90-30 with a 45-11 mark in the Ancient Eight. Harvard won at least 20 games in each of his four years with the team, and earned a trip to the postseason each year as well. He ranks 30th in Crimson annals with 1,016 points, is fifth with 176 three-pointers, and stands in fourth place with 117 career games played. Webster was an All-Ivy League honorable mention selection as a sophomore, and was also a recipient of Harvard’s John Harnice ’84 Spirit Award (2012-13), Floyd S. Wilson Sportsmanship Award (2010-11), and Henry Zimmerman Free Throw Shooting Accuracy Award (2009-10).
