Key sequence: Jim Goffredo hit a three-pointer to cap off a 7-0 Harvard run that cut Yale’s lead to 46-42 with under 14 minutes left, leading James Jones to call a 30-second timeout to regroup. Out of the timeout, Casey Hughes — an 18.3-percent three-point shooter the past two seasons — drilled a three-pointer to put the Bulldogs back up by seven. Three minutes later another Goffredo three trimmed the margin to five points, but Nick Holmes answered from beyond the arc at the other end to spark a 14-5 Yale, putting the Bulldogs in control with a 67-53 lead.
Key sequence: Princeton had seen its 17-point lead trimmed down to just one point on a Wyoming three-pointer with 3:34 left. With the shot clock under 10 seconds, Kyle Koncz took and hit a long three-pointer from the left wing to restore the lead to two possessions at the 3:01 mark.
Key sign it was over: After Colorado leading scorer Richard Roby went to the bench with his fourth foul with the Buffaloes leading 57-48, Ibrahim Jaaber missed a pair of free throws. A few minutes later, Roby’s replacement Andy Osbourn hit a three-pointer to put Colorado up 15 with just 5:36 remaining. Penn would get no closer than 11 points the rest of the way.
Key sign it was over: Down six in the final minute, Penn’s Brian Grandieri swiped the ball after Drexel’s Frank Elegar dribbled it off his own foot. The Dragons fouled Eric Osmundson, who hit a pair of free throws to put Penn up 65-57 with just 30 seconds to play.
