Yale went 10-5 over their first 15 games, losing to Colorado, Butler, Kentucky, Columbia and Dartmouth. The Bulldogs are 4-1 since then with wins over Harvard, Brown, Penn and Princeton alongside a loss to Cornell. 

In the Princeton game on Saturday, the Bulldogs trailed 36-35 going into the break. Yale hit a 52-29 run in the second on the way to an 87-65 win. John Poulakidas was tops in scoring with 19 points and two rebounds. 

Harvard Crimson

Over on the Harvard side, they lost to Louisiana, Fordham, UMass, Howard, Kansas and Princeton in their first 16 games. The Crimson are 2-3 in their last five with losses to Yale, Dartmouth and Penn. 

Matched up against Penn on Saturday, the Crimson were down 50-35 going into the second half. Harvard kept the pace with 33 points from there in an 83-68 defeat. Chris Ledlum was the top team scorer on 21 points and six rebounds. 


I’m going to stick with Yale here. the Bulldogs are playing pretty well over this current 4-1 stretch, and they’ve hit 70 or more points in each of the last four games. Yale managed a win the last time these teams met up back on January 7 at Lee Amphitheater, taking it 58-54. As for Harvard, they’ve ben playing fairly well at Lavietes over the last few games so I like them to make this one interesting. I still think the Bulldogs pull off the cover, though.
