The Harvard Orthopedic Basketball Team:
The Tomes 2010

The "Tomes," the Harvard Combined Orthopaedic Surgery basketball team, came together for another great season this year. The team was composed of returning veterans Robert Boykin, Jared Lee, Kanu Okike, Mike Baratz, and Ryan Gerry. Newcomers Maarten Koenis, Geert Buijze, and Kamran Hamid filled out the roster. This year’s squad had a decidedly international flare with the addition of Koenis and Buijze, who were visiting Boston while conducting research on a leave of absence from their European league basketball responsibilities.

Overall the regular season went very well in the MGH league at Basketball City, with the Tomes managing to intimidate most other departmental teams from the hospital. Some highlights included a humbling late game win over a medicine team with the Tomes playing one man down, a last second victory on free throws, and a continued record of games without a player ejected in the post Mattheos era. The team suffered an unexpected loss in the playoffs in what many are comparing to the recent Kansas loss to Northern Iowa. In spite of the playoff loss, the Tomes will be back next year in full force with the single focus of returning the championship trophy to White 6.

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. We would also like to encourage Harvard attendings to continue to recruit international researchers with basketball experience, preferably those that are 6' 4'' or taller.
