11/29/2014L 75-73AwayDerek Kelloggat Lavietes Pavilion. Davis' 3-point attempt to win the game bounces off the rim. Five Minutemen score in double-figures, and Clark scores 9. Foul shooting, which had been strong prior to this game, hurts as 10 FTs are missed. Many UM fans crowd into Harvard's small gym.IvyTommy AmakerCrimson

12/7/2019L 89-55AwayMatt McCallat Lavietes Pavilion. UM offers little defense as Harvard's 89 points are the most on a non-conf opponent in almost six years.
