Dartmouth received eleven points and seven rebounds from  Ian Sistare followed by James Foye who contributed seven points.

Over is 8-3 in Harvard last 11 overall and over is 10-4 in Harvard last 14 road games. Under is 11-3 in Dartmouth last 14 vs. Ivy League and under is 6-2 in Dartmouth last 8 overall. Road team is 11-3-2 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
