PRINCETON, N.J. – Adding to its slate of games on ESPN+ this season, the Harvard women's basketball team will appear on ESPN3 twice, as announced by the Ivy League today, Nov. 5.
As a part of ESPN3's "Game of the Week" package, Harvard will first appear on the network on Feb. 1 when it takes a trip to New Haven, Conn. to take on conference rival Yale. Nearly a month later, the Crimson will welcome Cornell to Cambridge on March 8 to close out the package.
Harvard kicks off its 2018-19 campaign this weekend with a trip to Notre Dame and Purdue, Nov. 9-11. The Crimson was picked to finish third in the Ivy League preseason poll as the team returns four of its top five leading scorers from last season, including senior co-captains Madeline Raster and Sydney Skinner. Head coach Kathy Delaney-Smith returns for her 37th at the helm of the program after leading the Crimson to its third-straight, and eighth in the last 10 years, WNIT appearance.
