Dear Harvard Community,

On behalf of our basketball program, we can’t thank you enough for the incredible support that you have shown to our basketball team during and since our recent NCAA Tournament run, as well as all year long!   We have been truly amazed by the friendship and support that so very many of our Harvard colleagues and neighbors have shown us.  We feel privileged to be a part of this community with you, and we were honored to represent Harvard over the past weeks.

It was truly special to have so many of the Harvard community with us in Spokane, despite the great distance from our campus!  And it was amazing for us to hear about the many Harvard groups across the country who gathered to cheer on our team and show their school pride.  No one is more proud to “be Harvard” than we are.

It has been a thrilling few weeks, but we want to thank you as well for the constant support all year long, which propelled us to our 4th straight Ivy League title and our 3rd straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.   To the band, cheer teams, faculty, staff and all members of the Harvard Community, THANK YOU!


As always, a very special THANK YOU to our students!  They continue to fight for our team in a positive manner that is truly representative of this great institution.  I continue to be very proud of what you do—and how you do it.

Congratulations!!  Thank you!!  And Go Crimson!

Coach Tommy Amaker
