Final exams have sapped my will to live, and with it, my ability to put together any semblance of a preview for tonight's game against Harvard, so you're only getting a few short sentences here, but hopefully they'll be good. First: Harvard has had quite a few good teams in recent years, so they're not the standard cupcake you might imagine them to be, but an academic scandal has cost them two senior co-captains, meaning they won't be as stout as they could have been. Second: Enosch Wolf is starting. I don't think we've done a lot to hide our love of Enosch, whose progress has been the second best thing about this season (outside of Kevin Ollie's early success). Wolf has grabbed his starting spot at the expense of Tyler Olander (it was thought he might get the nod in lieu of DeAndre Daniels, who is battling back spasms). It will be interesting to see how the switch affects both Olander and Wolf, especially since you can make a strong argument that the two could be best served by sharing the court together, freeing Olander up to play his more natural power forward role.
