Dartmouth men’s bball wins

56-54 over Harvard, opening the Ivy season

The boys outscored the Crimson by one point each half. Freshman Leon Pattman led the way with 16 points–some of them coming on off-balanced shots– and David Gardner came up big at the end, finishing with 12 points and 9 rebounds.

A strong crowd of 1303 saw the game, perhaps in part because of some blitz advertizing by junior captain Steve Callahan, who was one of the only steady ballhandlers on the court throughout the game.
