Harvard uses free throws to get past Columbia in OT, 83-81

NEW YORK (AP) Bryce Aiken and Justin Bassey each converted a pair of free throws in the closing seconds of overtime to lift Harvard to an 83-81 win over Columbia in the regular season finale on Saturday night.

Harvard (17-10, 10-4) entered the weekend with a chance to clinch a second-straight Ivy League title for the first time since 2015, but a 72-59 loss at Cornell gave Yale the regular season title and the No. 1 seed into the Ivy League tournament.

Harvard's Noah Kirkwood hit two free throws with 18 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 67-67 and force overtime. Danilo Djuricic dunked three times in overtime, turning one into a 3-point play, and Christian Juzang added a 3-pointer to give the Crimson 79-76 lead with 33 seconds left. Gabe Stefanini scored to get Columbia within one, but Aikin converted two free throws with 18 seconds left and Bassey added two more with :07 on the clock to make it a five-point advantage before Stefanini hit a late 3 to set the final margin.
