Harvard Rallies Late to Beat Boston University, 65-64

Wesley Saunders (Jon Luszcz)

The Harvard Crimson finally pushed their record above .500 Tuesday night, riding performances from freshman Siyani Chambers and sophomore Wesley Saunders, who scored 21 and 16 points respectively.

Their win came with just 4 seconds remaining in the game against Boston University, when Chambers knocked down a huge jumper. Harvard had been trailing since halftime and for almost all of the second half but a late rally to give them a lead started to rattle the Terriers. Junior forward Dom Morris layed one in to take the lead back for BU, 63-62, with just over a minute remaining, part of a double-double performance.

Junior guard D.J. Irving, who gave the Terriers a lead with 9 seconds to go before Chambers took it back, had a chance to steal the game for BU, but his jump shot rang off the iron and he would settle for a game-high 24 points on the night.

BU had won three straight coming into the contest but this, their fourth straight loss to Harvard, snapped their run.  They will take on Quinnipiac at home on Sunday, while Harvard welcomes Holy Cross on Saturday.
