Ithaca, NY (Sports Network) - Oliver McNally scored 17 points to help lead the Harvard Crimson past the Cornell Big Red 67-63 in an Ivy League tilt at Newman Arena.
Brandyn Curry tallied 12 points and Kyle Casey put up 11 points for Harvard (26-4, 12-2 Ivy League). Keith Wright recorded eight points and 11 rebounds for the Crimson, who close out the regular season having won five of six.
For Cornell (12-16, 7-7), Chris Wroblewski led the way with 19 points and seven rebounds.
Harvard held the Big Red to just 32.1 percent from the field in the first half as it took a 27-21 lead into intermission.
Cornell kept the game close by improving its field goal percentage to 48.1 after the break, but Harvard was able to hold on to the lead by shooting 11- of-20 from the floor in the second half, including 7-of-13 from three-point range.
