College Stadium Review: Lavietes Pavilion

The Harvard Crimson has been to the NCAA Tournament five times in school history. Four of those have been the last four. Tommy Amaker has coached the Crimson into a basketball powerhouse out of the Ivy League, reaching the Big Dance now four years in a row and advancing to Round of 32 twice (2013 and 2014). Before this run, the only time Harvard had been to the Tournament was in 1946 when they were in the Elite Eight.

In the Ivy League, there is no conference tournament to decide the automatic bid to the Big Dance. So the Crimson must win the conference regular season title to advance. This means games at Lavietes Pavilion are that much bigger than regular season games from other leagues.

Harvard has also been to the NIT in 2011 and the CIT in 2010, so they have been to the postseason six straight years. Will this season be the seventh? Come out to Lavietes Center and see.

The Crimson has been playing their home games at Lavietes Pavilion since it opened in 1982. It seats a little over 2,100 fans which means every seat is close to the court. Where else can you watch a Top 32 program this close?

You can enjoy great seats for games against teams such as MIT, UMass, Bryant, Wofford, Vermont, Dartmouth, Cornell, Columbia, Brown, Yale and more while you enjoy your favorite concession items such as burgers, dogs, nachos, sausage, popcorn, pretzels, nachos and more.
