News and Game Schedules



Contact Us


Harvard Chinese Basketball Club (HCBC) was founded in the Autumn of 2000 by about 10 basketball fans of Harvard University. Most of our current members are either postdoctoral fellows or graduate students of the school. We play almost every weekend in the basketball courts of the Harvard Malkin Athletic Center (MAC).

In the past, HCBC has organized and participated in quite a few formal and informal basketball games. In Oct. 2001, we competed in the 2001 Chinese North America Sports Exchange Association Cup Basketball Tournament, and won the Memorial Cup.

If driving west on Mass Ave (from Central Square), stay in the left lane, turn left on Dunster immediately after the Holyoke Center Au Bon Pain and immediately before the road curves right, left again on Mt.Auburn (which is a one-way anyway), past the blinking yellow lights and right immediately onto Holyoke.

If driving south/east on Mass Ave (from Porter Square), stay in the middle lanes as you pass Cambridge Common, and switch to the left lane as you go past the Coop on the right and the T and Out-of-Town News on the left.
