Harvard vs Cornell

Harvard reaches 20 wins, tops Cornell 67-44


  •  

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) Brandyn Curry scored 14 points with five steals as Harvard pounded Cornell 67-44 on Saturday night to reach 20 wins for the fifth straight season.

The Crimson (20-4, 7-1 Ivy) are the first Ivy League team in a generation to reach that plateau since Penn's league-record six times (1970-75).

Harvard's balanced attack featured four players in double figures - Laurent Rivard 12 points, Wesley Saunders 11 and Steve Moundou-Missi 10 - and was a potent 60 percent from the floor (27-45). With 10 steals and a block, Harvard forced 16 turnovers.

Big Red (2-20, 1-7) was led by Nolan Cressler's 17 points. Cornell went to the free-throw line just five times, making three.

Rivard opened the game with a 3-pointer in a matter of seconds and Harvard never trailed, reaching double-digit leads with a Curry basket a little more than 12 minutes in.
