The Basketball Gods must have been smiling down on Harvard's current most famous alumni on Thursday night. After giving the Houston Rockets an off-night on Thursday night, the Gods then scheduled Harvard to face New Mexico on that open evening ... allowing Jeremy Lin to sit back and watch the biggest upset so far in the tournament. And Lin was more than just a little excited when 14th-seeded Harvard knocked off the third seeded Lobos. YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you.... threepointgoggles bracketbusters twitter.comJLin7status3 Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) March 22, 2013 "YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you..." Lin tweeted after Harvard's first ever win in the NCAA tournament. You don't have to be a Harvard graduate to count Lin's excitement. That's five "Y's," five "E's," and nine "S's," to go with three exclamation points. Earlier in the day, Lin was talking smack with teammate Chandler Parsons on Twitter about their Final Four picks. After Parsons released his Final Four, Lin responded back, asking where Harvard was in his selections. "In the library," Parsons tweeted back to Lin. "Whatever ... learn to read," Lin tweeted in response. But it seems now that Lin got the last laugh. "My bracket is finished. Tough day 1 for me. Harvard tho?? I had New Mexico in final 4!! Smh," Parsons tweeted after Harvard's win. And if Parsons wants to know hop on the Harvard bandwagon, well Lin has put together a video on five easy steps to get into Harvard for him.
