ESPN3 to Broadcast Men's Basketball Game Against Princeton March 5

The Crimson has tied its program record with 21 victories this season (Mitchell Layton).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – In one of the most anticipated men's basketball games in Harvard history, the Crimson's game against Princeton will be broadcast live from Lavietes Pavilion on ESPN3.com Saturday, March 5 at 7 p.m. 

The direct link for the broadcast can be found here.

Anthony Calhoun will be the play-by-play announcer, while Mark Adams will serve as the color analyst for this crucial Ivy League matchup.

The game, which is sold out, will feature a Harvard team that stands 21-5 overall and 10-2 in the Ancient Eight, while Princeton enters the week 22-5 and 10-1 in Ivy League contests. Two Harvard victories this week against Penn and Princeton would clinch at least a share of the Ivy League title for the Crimson, which would be the first in program history.

Harvard has tied the program record with its 21 victories this season and is one win shy of knotting the Crimson mark for Ivy victories (11-3 in 1970-71).

For subscribers to Harvard's video stream, the game will be blacked out, but will be available after the game on GoCrimson.com.
