On August 23rd, please join Harvard Club Members and Harvard Basketball Alumni to welcome Tommy Amaker, Harvard Men’s Basketball Head Coach, to Southern California.  Coach Amaker will be in Los Angeles for a special evening reception to meet alumni and friends.  Coach Amaker has been recognized nationally for improving Harvard Men’s Basketball, changing the program’s culture into one acknowledged for its excellence and winning record.

In 2010-11, led by Coach Amaker, Harvard went 23-7 overall and posted a 12-2 Ivy League record, establishing several program records, including wins (23), conference victories (12) and home wins (14). The Crimson defeated an opponent from the Big XII for the first time (Colorado) and bested Boston College for the third straight season. Harvard also earned a share of its first Ivy title.
The Crimson also played in the post-season for the 2nd straight year, earning a berth in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) for the first time in program history. The Harvard Men's Basketball team ended its season 35th in the Ratings Percentage Index, the highest mark of any team that did not earn an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.
Following the season, Coach Amaker was honored as an NABC All-District Coach of the Year, as well as the Ivy Coach of the Year. He was also named a finalist for the Ben Jobe and Hugh Durham coaching awards.
Coach Amaker won two NCAA championships and advanced to five Final Fours as an assistant at Duke before embarking on a successful head coaching career at Seton Hall and Michigan.
Coach Amaker looks forward to meeting informally with Harvard Club members and their friends, and will offer a special video presentation on the Harvard Men’s Basketball program.
