BOSTON – Now that the season is here, we got our first look at a question many wondered before the season: how would Harvard deal with its embarrassment of riches in personnel? It was a question that made sense on the surface, but anyone who has been around the program knows it’s one that should have been easily answered long before the Crimson knocked off Holy Cross on Sunday at the Boston Garden.
The starting lineup might have surprised some, with both Brandyn Curry and Kyle Casey on the floor at the opening tip. With both having sat out last season, there is surely a rust factor of sorts, but one can figure they earned their spots. More surprising, however, might have been the presence of junior Steve Moundou-Missi, only because he’s been so good coming off the bench and has no problem with doing so. Head coach Tommy Amaker has said they refer to Moundou-Missi as their sixth starter.
