For all the Linsanity in the world, Jeremy Lin never did this. The former Harvard star watched his alma mater make history Thursday night as the No. 14 Crimson upset No. 3 New Mexico. Not only did Harvard take down a team that many people expected to go the Final Four, but the boys from Cambridge also notched the Ivy League school’s first tournament win ever. Lin was understandably excited after the win. YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you.... #threepointgoggles #bracketbusters http://t.co/ZlpqTFCPtM— Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) March 22, 2013 Harvard was a strong 8-for-18 from behind the arc, with Laurent Rivard sinking five of his nine 3-pointers. Siyani Chambers had seven assists in the win. Lin was at the beginning of what has now become a Harvard hoops renaissance under new coach Tommy Amaker. He averaged 17.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists his junior year, then 16.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists his senior year. He did not, however, ever shoot better than 40 percent from 3-point land.
