Recap: Massachusetts vs. Harvard

Amherst, MA (Sports Network) - Sampson Carter couldn't have picked a more ideal time for his lone basket of the game.

The senior forward drained a 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds remaining to lift the Massachusetts Minutemen to a season-opening 67-64 victory over the Harvard Crimson.

With the seconds dwindling, Chaz Williams drove to the hoop and dished to Carter, who connected from the left corner on only his third attempt from the floor.

Jesse Morgan had 19 points to lead the Minutemen (1-0), who scored the game's final eight points to stun Harvard. Raphiael Putney scored 13 points and Williams finished with a 12-point, 10-assist double-double.

Wesley Saunders made two free throws to put the Crimson up 64-59 with 1:21 remaining. After Morgan hit a jumper in the lane, Harvard turned the ball over on a 5-second call on its next possession and Morgan tied the game by nailing a deep three with 38.8 seconds left.

Harvard's Christian Webster then lost the ball out of bounds against the press, giving UMass the opportunity to hold for the final shot.

Saunders supplied 18 points for the Crimson (1-1), who opened their season with Friday's win over MIT.

UMass and Harvard met for the first time since 1991.
