First half was awful basketball with both teams playing poorly. Dartmouth looked liked it was going to get blown out and Harvard with the exception of Townes couldn’t make a shot either. Second half Harvard started strong but went ice cold. Dartmouth lead by Chris Knight got the team going. He played a good game all around. Glad to see McLaughlin start him but inexplicably took him out during some critical times. Barry was outplayed and shot 3 for 13. His lack of speed is an issue at point and good defensive teams shit him down. He needs to be a spot up shooting guard and we still need to find a point guard. Miles Wright didn’t score and was a non factor throughout the game. The great disappearing act. Taylor Johnson played hard and willed us back in the game. There were some encouraging moments with our young class but we are missing guards who can defend on the ball. Harvard was not good tonight and escap d with a win. Townes was the best player on the court followed by Knight.

Dartmouth played a heck of a second half - twice.
15-0 and 16-3 runs starting about 5 minutes into the second half each game against Harvard.

The ghosts of Justin Sears and the final 5 seconds at Leedes game back to bite Dartmouth this time - to the continuing benefit of the Crimson.

Someone has to tell your former coach/announcer that the microphone is still on when they go to break. In the first half he muttered that Harvard's defense was killing 'us' and in the second half he stated that Dartmouth was about to get 'blown out.' I guess it could have been worse, but there was no Billy Bush around to goad him further.

Sadly for Dartmouth, if Boudreaux plays while Byrce Aiken does not, Dartmouth is 2-0.

The announcer thought they were at commercial when he said that Dartmouth is going to get blown out. To his credit he did admit after the comeback that he gave up on them. and if D can find someone to bring up the ball, Barry would be deadly on the wings. But he clearly was exhausted trying to create and get open shots for himself.

There wasn’t a PG on the court for either team. Really showed at times. Some ugly stretches.

Agree that Barry should be a shooting guard but then who brings up the ball and sets the offense? What about Rai or Letoa. Barry plays hard but his skill set needs to be redeployed to make better use of his talents.

Jackson is a real sleeper. He is tough, a good athlete and needs more playing time so he can learn the game. The raw material is there and should be developed.

Knight and Rai are strong talents who are already mainstays and will only get better. The sky is the limit for both of them. Nourish, develop, respect and motivate them.

Emery and Sistare have great hearts and desire. When someone complained to Lincoln about Grant's drinking, Lincoln replied: "Find out what he drinks and give a bottle to each of my generals". There is always a place for players like Sistare and Emery.

Wright and Johnson are talented but inconsistent seniors. Wright was 0-6 from the field and grabbed 2 rebounds whilst playing 39 minutes against Harvard yesterday. Johnson plays well in spurts but gets wild and careless. Disappearances and inconsistencies can't be tolerated in seniors while talented freshmen and sophomores needing development are riding the pine.

There is real upside in this team and this old alum hopes the players and coaches bring it to fruition.
