James T. Brown '73

Basketball- Hall of Fame Class of 1997
Harvard Athletic Achievements

James’ years at Harvard came during an era when the Crimson boasted its “best basketball talent thus far in the school’s history.” He was one of the “superstars” of the Class of ’73, and played on the first teams since 1936-38 to produce three consecutive winning seasons. Among them was the squad of ’70-’71, which won 11 Ivy games and placed second in the League. For three straight years, James was a Second Team All-Ivy selection. He graduated as the second all-time leading scorer and rebounder in Harvard history and still ranks ninth and fourth in those categories, respectively. And James still holds the mark for most field goals in a game (18), part of a 36-point performance against Boston University in 1972.
