NEW YORK (AP) Siyani Chambers and Steve Moundou-Missi scored 22 points apiece Friday night as Harvard escaped at Columbia with an 88-84 double overtime win.

Laurent Rivard made a 3-pointer to put Harvard up 82-77 with 59 seconds left in the second overtime. The Crimson made 6 of 10 free throws from there to hang on for the win.

Wesley Saunders had 19 points and seven assists while Rivard added 10 points to help Harvard (19-4, 6-1) remain tied with Yale for the top spot of the Ivy League.

Columbia (14-10, 3-4) faltered despite a career-high 34 points from Alex Rosenberg. With the game tied at 73 and 2.3 seconds left in the first overtime, Rosenberg banked in a 3-pointer, but was called for charging and the shot was waived off.
