Loss of captains didn't stop Harvard basketball's 3-peat

(Continued)

Amaker said he was hoping for a friendlier matchup than last year, when Harvard lost to senior-heavy Vanderbilt. Having some experience in the NCAA tournament could help when the selection committee decides on seeds and opponents, too.

“The hope we have going into it is a draw that you feel like you’ve got a chance. Last year was a very tough draw for us,” he said. “We’re excited to be a part of it again, as you can imagine. We’re incredibly young, but these kids have had a sensational year.”

And Amaker, who played for the Duke team that went to the national championship game in 1986, said they even have a chance to keep it going.

“Crazier things have happened in this great tournament we’re participating in,” he said.
