The Harvard Orthopedic Basketball Team:
The Tomes 2009


After losing 5th year starters Charlie Petit, Steve Mattheos, and Ray Hwang to the big leagues many thought the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Surgery basketball team would have a serious rebuilding year. However with returning players Robert Boykin (PGY-3), Kanu Okike (PGY-2), and Jared Lee (PGY-2) from the 2008 Championship Team and the addition of Babjide Ogunseinde (PGY-5), Darren Lebl (PGY-4), Sang Kim (PGY-2), Mike Baratz (PGY-1), Rich Lee (Spine Fellow), and Jeff Knott (BIDMC spine PA) the “Tomes” had a great showing.

Overall the team was very competitive in the MGH league at Basketball City in Boston playing against other departments in the hospital. For what they may have lacked in terms of height this year they made up with brute orthopaedic force and strength, continuing the Mattheos legacy. In addition, both Jared Lee and Robert Boykin finished the season amongst the top five scorers in the league. The team suffered a devastating final minute loss to the eventual champions in the playoffs, but are poised to regain the trophy with the majority of the players returning in 2010.

The team would like to thank Dr. Rubash for his continued sponsorship and generous support. All attendings, fellows, and residents with basketball experience are welcome to join the team in the coming year. The Tomes will continue to strive for a level of excellence on and off the court, and with that in mind pre-season practice will begin soon (*this does not count toward work hours). We anticipate an even bigger, stronger, and faster team this year with the availability of the newly opened “Resident Library” at the MGH.
