Welcome to Harvard …


Welcome to Lavietes Pavilion, basketball home of the Harvard Crimson, for what may be the only professional basketball we see in the Boston area for some time.

They’re terming this the Boston Charity Classic, and proceeds from tonight’s game will aid local Boston charities in providing meals for the holiday season (the three charities are SPIN, Sojourner House, and the Crossroads Family Shelter). They should raise plenty of money — there’s a line of green-and-white clad NBA fans snaked around the building and up past Harvard Stadium. No sign of any players yet.

Here the the rosters for tonight’s game:


White Team:

Kyle Lowry
Marquis Daniels
Jeff Green
Leon Powe
Nate Robinson
Paul Pierce

Green Team:

Jeremy Lin
JaJuan Johnson
Rudy Gay
Josh Smith
Kendrick Perkins
Rajon Rondo

We’ll be providing live game updates for those of you who can’t be here, and the plan is to upload video highlights and player interviews after the game. Happy hooping.
