Harvard beats Dartmouth 79-48 in Ivy League opener
BOSTON (AP)—Keith Wright scored 22 points and Harvard won its fifth straight, 79-48 over Dartmouth on Saturday in the Ivy League opener for both teams.
Christian Webster added 12 points and Jeremy Lin had 11 points, six steals and five assists for the Crimson (12-3).
The game was the first for Dartmouth without coach Terry Dunn, who resigned Friday. Dunn, who was in his sixth season, led the Big Green (3-11) to a win over Bucknell on Monday that snapped a four-game losing streak. Three assistant coaches handled Saturday’s game and an interim coach is expected to be announced next week.
Harvard led 40-31 with 16:14 to play, the last time the lead was in single digits. Harvard outscored Dartmouth 36-16 the rest of the way and built its largest lead at 75-43 with 2:29 to play on a layup by Webster.
Ronnie Dixon, Dartmouth’s only player in double figures, had 12 points.
