Basketballers Win Atlantis

The Harvard men won the Battle 4 Atlantis basketball tournament in the Bahamas.

The Harvard men's basketball team posted another first just after Thanksgiving, taking three games in three days and defeating Central Florida, 59-49, to win the inaugural Battle 4 Atlantis tournament at Paradise Island, Bahamas. In an eight-team field that included fourth-ranked Connecticut and twenty-second-ranked Florida State, the Crimson surprised many by seizing the championship. The win raised Harvard's record to 6-0, the first time the team has made such a strong start since the 1984-85 season. Kyle Casey ’13 scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the last game, while senior co-captain Keith Wright, recently profiled in Harvard Magazine, hit 12 points and seven rebounds. Wright was named tournament MVP, as well as Ivy League Player of the Week. Junior point guard Brandyn Curry directed the offense, and also had a big tournament. In the finale against Central Florida, Harvard overcame a team that included no less a name than Michael Jordan's son Marcus; the scion recorded 10 points in the game.
