Even for the teams located closer than Harvard - it's an obiligation, not something they want to do. Agree no one wants to lose, but mostly a lot don't want to play this event. College coaches will give their players parameters - can't hit "such and such a shot" or you have to do "x" twice before you can hit a winner, it is a practice match. So ya, sure they get frustrated playing especially when they can't always play their game. It's just a training session for them. And ya, the Harvard guys don't want to be there, nor do the other players.
Hog wash. It's not this way for "all" player and may be like this if at all for a few. No different than any other fall tourney. Period.
