Ithaca, NY (Sports Network) - Siyani Chambers recorded a double-double with 18 points and 11 assists as he helped guide the Harvard Crimson to a 67-65 win over the Cornell Big Red in Ivy League play at Newman Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the Crimson (13-6, 5-0 Ivy) were Christian Webster with 17 points, on 5-of-11 shooting behind the 3-point line, followed by Wesley Saunders and Steve Moundou-Missi with 14 and 11 points, respectively, as the team won for the sixth time in the last seven outings.

Cornell (10-12, 2-3) was paced by Errick Peck with 17 points and nine rebounds off the bench, while Shonn Miller tacked on 13 points and Johnathan Gray 12 as the team lost for the second time in three tries.

Harvard shot an impressive 60.0 percent from the floor in the first half, allowing the visitors to take a 38-22 advantage at the break.
