HANOVER, N.H. — It had been 12 years since Dartmouth had won its Ivy League opener. That drought ended in emphatic fashion as the Big Green (10-7, 1-0 Ivy) blistered the Harvard defense by shooting 68.1 percent in defeating the visiting Crimson (6-7, 0-1 Ivy), 81-63, in front of a raucous Leede Arena crowd on Saturday night.

All eight Dartmouth players that saw action hit more than half of their field goal attempts, led by sophomore Chris Knight with 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting with a 3-pointer (his fifth of the season) and a perfect 3-for-3 effort at the foul line. Three juniors joined him in double figures — Ian Sistare (13), Brendan Barry (11) and James Foye (10) with the trio combining to drain seven of the Big Green’s 11 triples in just 21 attempts (.524).

More to come …
