    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Laurent Rivard scored 16 points as Harvard (No. 23 ESPN/USA Today) remained unbeaten in Ivy League play with a 71-60 victory over Cornell on Friday night.

    The victory was the 24th in a row at home for the Crimson (19-2, 5-0), extending their record for the program, and was their seventh straight overall. Their 5-0 league start matches the 1980-81 squad for the program's best ever.

    Rivard scored 11 first-half points, including two 3-pointers and a pair of free throws in a span of 1:28, as Harvard took a 38-24 lead into halftime. The Big Red (7-12, 2-3) shot just 30.8 percent (8 of 26) in the first half.

    Harvard's lead reached as many as 22 points, 57-35, with 8:22 remaining in the game.

    Kyle Casey finished with 13 points for the Crimson, and Keith Wright and Steve Moundou-Missi each had nine.

    Johnathan Gray scored 14 points to lead Cornell.
