THREE THINGS TO WATCH

Boston Herald - - BASEBALL SCOREBOARD - — COM­PILED BY ROSS GIENIECZKO

1. Get­ting Ge­orge­town off the field on third down will help Har­vard’s ground game wear down the Hoyas de­fense. Ge­orge­town has con­verted just 8-of-41 third down at­tempts this year, (19.5 per­cent), while the Crim­son de­fense has held op­po­nents to 12-for-26 on third down (46 per­cent).

2. Har­vard has been dom­i­nant in the brief his­tory of the all-time se­ries against Ge­orge­town. The Crim­son are 3-0 and have outscored the Hoyas 110-20 in those games, all of which have taken place in the last three years.

3. The out­look for in­jured Har­vard fresh­man Ben Aber­crom­bie re­mains cau­tiously op­ti­mistic. Two weeks af­ter un­der­go­ing ver­te­brae surgery, Aber­crom­bie is be­gin­ning to re­gain some feel­ing in his arms and legs, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by Joseph Good­man of Al.com.
