    Dartmouth 76, Harvard 74

    BOSTON (AP) -- Matt Stehle scored a career high 25 points and Harvard held off a determined late second-half run by Dartmouth to claim a 76-74 win in the Ivy League opener for both schools Sunday.

    The Big Green (3-8, 0-1) cut a 10 point Crimson lead, 63-53 with 7:02 on the clock following a Michael Beal jump shot, to 75-74 on Michael Lang's 3-pointer with 11.4 remaining.

    But Kevin Rogus was fouled on Harvard's next trip downcourt and made the second of two free throws to give Harvard their final margin.

    Steve Callahan's 3-point short at the buzzer fell short as Dartmouth dropped its record on the road to 0-6.

    Harvard (5-8, 1-0) got 13 points and a game high nine rebounds from Brian Cusworth, who came off the bench after missing four games with a left hand injury. Jason Norman scored 11 points.

    Lang paced Dartmouth with 24 points while David Gardner and Callahan each scored 17 points.

    It was the sixth consecutive victory at home for Harvard over Dartmouth.

    The Crimson were out-rebounded 32-27 but only turned the ball over four times in the second half after 10 turnovers in the first half.

    Stehle scored 12 points in the first half, but Harvard was outscored 21-5 off the bench and trailed at halftime 35-32.
