A battle of Ivy League schools saw one of the crazier endings to a college basketball game that you’ll ever see.
Harvard and Columbia each hit a buzzer-beater – one at the end of regulation, one to force a second overtime – before the Crimson eventually prevailed 98-96 in triple overtime.
The madness was started by the Lions’ Gabe Stefanini, who forced the extra session with a clutch 3-pointer. He would finish the game with a team-high 26 points.
The game was made even crazier by Harvard’s Bryce Aiken, who nailed an insane, acrobatic 3 to send the game to double-overtime. Aiken ended with a game-high 44 points.
Yet another big 3, this time by Jake Killingsworth with less than 20 seconds to go in double-OT, necessitated a third extra session.
Harvard finally managed to outlast Columbia to move to 11-7 on the season and 4-1 in the conference.
