The Owls (4-8) were behind for the majority of the first half, but stayed within striking distance of the Crimson. Mattison provided a boost off the bench for the Owls, scoring all six of first half points in a row for FAU. His efforts helped the Owls to tie the game at 17, midway through the period.
From that point, Harvard (10-1) outscored FAU 17-8 over the next eight minutes to build a nine point advantage. Omari Grier hit a three-pointer to cut the margin to six, 34-28, at the break. FAU opened the second half quickly and eventually regained the lead 41-40 with 12:41 left on the clock.
The score was tied at 45 when a cold spell hit the Owls and Harvard was able to cement the victory with a final scoring burst. Taylor added five assists in the game. FAU will take some time for Christmas, before hosting Siena on Wednesday, December 28. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. and live audio and live stats will be available at www.fausports.com.
