What to Know

The Yale Bulldogs and the Harvard Crimson will face off at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Lavietes Pavilion without much rest after games the previous day. Yale is currently enjoying a five-game winning streak and is looking to extend their dominance.

While not quite a landslide, the matchup between the Bulldogs and the Dartmouth Big Green on Friday was still a pretty decisive one as Yale wrapped it up with a 72-61 win on the road.

Meanwhile, Harvard entered their game against the Brown Bears on Friday without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. Harvard came up short against Brown, falling 64-55. This was hardly the result the Crimson or its fans were betting on, as they were favored by 10.5 points over the Bears heading into this contest.

Yale's victory brought them up to 23-6 while Harvard's loss pulled them down to 20-8. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Bulldogs come into the contest boasting the 25th most blocked shots per game in college basketball at 3.5. But Harvard is even better: they rank seventh in college basketball when it comes to blocked shots per game, with 5.3 on average. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
