ITHACA, N.Y. -- Siyani Chambers scored 18 points with a career-high 11 assists, the freshman's second straight double-double, and Harvard held on to defeat Cornell 67-65 Friday night to remain unbeaten in the Ivy League.
The Crimson (13-6, 5-0) twice led by 21 points early in the second half, but Cornell (10-12, 2-3) rallied by shooting 62.5 percent (15 of 24) in the final 20 minutes.
Harvard led 67-52 with 4:21 left after a pair of 3-pointers by Christian Webster, but a 13-0 run pulled Cornell to within 67-65 with 42 seconds left.
A missed free throw by Chambers gave Cornell the ball with 11 seconds to play, but Errick Peck was unable to hit a potential game-winner.
Webster made 5 of 11 3-pointers and finished with 17 points for the Crimson, and Wesley Saunders added 14 points.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
