Yes, it was a very good game Saturday evening at Levien.
I saw things a bit differently though. Harvard was not ready for Columbia's zone. In the first half, Harvard only made 7 shots (25%), too often settling for long range bombs (3-16 on 3's in the half). Columbia, meanwhile, scored against Harvard's overplay defense primarily on nifty back door cuts. Not really much in the 'trenches.'
In the second half, Harvard settled down and dominated the so called trenches. After Columbia scored the first two buckets of the second half, Harvard outscored Columbia 36-20. Harvard outrebounded Columbia and blocked 10 shots to Columbia's 2.
Not trying to take anything away from Columbia's big win. Just saw the game differently - and in person as well.
