Last Time Out
Harvard dropped Cornell Dec. 4 in the same fashion they had each of its previous four competitors, 9-0. Six of the nine matches were won by Crimson players 3-0.
The Crimson is currently riding a 17-match win streak that dates back to the start of the 2009-10 season. Harvard's last loss came in the CSA Team National Championship of the 2008-09 season to Princeton. Over the course of the current streak, ten of the Crimson's victories have been 9-0 shutouts.
Bates enters the match 7-7 on the season. The Bobcats played four matches over the weekend defeating No. 13 Mount Holyoke and No. 15 Franklin and Marshall, but dropped matches to No. 14 Amherst and No. 8 Dartmouth.
Wednesday's contest is only the second time ever that the Crimson and Bobcats have played each other. Harvard won the only other match on Dec. 20, 1999, 9-0.
Harvard will return home Jan. 26 to face Trinity on the Barnaby Courts. Match time is slated for 5 p.m.
