Harvard 68, Colgate 59

BOSTON (AP) -- Drew Housman scored a career-high 21 points and Matt Stehle added 13 points as Harvard came from behind to beat Colgate 68-59 on Tuesday night.

The Crimson (8-3) also got 13 points from Jim Goffredo as they handed head coach Frank Sullivan his most non-conference wins in his 15-year Harvard career.

Alvin Reed paced Colgate with 14 points while Jon Simon added 10.

Harvard was 30 of 39 from the free throw line and outrebounded the Raiders 43-24.

After trailing by as many as 11 in the first half, the Raiders tied the game at 39-39 with 14:30 left in the game on a 3-pointer by Kyle Chones.

Dan Gentile's 3-pointer capped a 14-3 Colgate run that gave them a 53-47 lead with 6:47 remaining.

But Housman hit a 3-point shot with 5:06 on the clock to put Harvard back on top 54-53.

The Crimson never trailed after that to improve to 5-1 at home.

Housman, Goffredo and Martin each scored six points for the Crimson in the first half. They outrebounded Colgate 25-13 in that half to lead 29-24 at halftime.
