    HANOVER, N.H. -- Oliver McNally's 12-foot runner off the glass with 12 seconds left gave Harvard a 63-62 victory over Dartmouth on Saturday night in the Ivy League opener for both schools.

    Alex Barnett missed a 14-footer at the buzzer for Dartmouth (2-11).

    Andre Pusar had 19 points for Harvard (9-6), which was coming off its first-ever victory over a ranked opponent on Wednesday at No. 17 Boston College. McNally finished with 10 points.

    Dan Biber led a balanced Dartmouth attack -- 10 players scored -- with 10 points.

    With just under five minutes to play, Dartmouth took a 57-53 lead when Ronnie Dixon stole a pass and cruised for a layup. But Harvard answered with six straight points.

    With 2:08 to go, Elgin Fitzgerald had a 3-point play to Dartmouth back on top 60-59.

    But McNally hit a jumper to put Harvard ahead 61-60 before Barnett hit a short jump for Dartmouth's last lead.
