Harvard was in control the entire game. MIT stayed close early with strong three-point shooting, but the Crimson pulled away with runs of 20-6 and 16-4 in the second half.

MIT couldn’t match its opponent in the paint (being outscored 54-18) and had 11 shots blocked. Harvard’s bench also outscored MIT’s 43-7.

Brown Collects All-America, ECAC Accolades

For the second year in a row, DeRon M. Brown ’10 was named a All-American. Brown earned Honorable Mention plaudits and was one of five players from the New England Football Conference to make the cut. Brown picked up MIT’s 11th All-America honor and became the fourth player in the program’s history to graduate with a pair of awards.

Brown also represented the Engineers on the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Northeast All-Star Team. The selection was the 25th for the Cardinal and Gray and first since Keith G. Reed ’04 in 2003.
