15 Thoughts from the Harvard Game ☆

It’s been nearly a week since the dream died and the season ended. I haven’t offered up my thoughts about the Harvard game for a couple of reasons, many of them being I was writing about many other college basketball games over the weekend and the site was migrating to the new form.

Spartans hold off Harvard, advance to Sweet 16

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- For 18 seconds, it was happening. Harvard owned basketball, too. Laurent Rivard made a 3-pointer from the corner, flashed his 3-point goggles toward an unhinged group of Crimson fans and ran down the court. The Ivy Leaguers had overcome a 16-point deficit to take a two-point lead over a Michigan State team that always comes up big at March Madness. The next...

No. 12 Harvard beats No. 5 Cincinnati but doesn’t upset

The kids from Cambridge, MA did it again – they pulled an “upset.” In similar fashion to last year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament, the Harvard Crimson defeated a higher ranked seed in the opening round. In 2013, it was the 3-seed New Mexico Lobos that went home early. This year, Harvard ousted 5-seed Cincinnati in a game that did not feel like an upset. 6-foot-5, guard...

Harvard Closes The Book On Bearcats; Will Play Michigan State Next

It was almost destined to happen. The Harvard Crimson were the fashionable choice around the nation’s office pools to pull off the “12-5” upset and advance to the Round of 32 at the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Even President Obama had Harvard in his bracket, although he may have been biased (J.D. magna cum laude, 1991). Sure enough, the No. 12 Crimson got the job done...
