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...

Michigan State-Harvard preview

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- It's more than a figure of speech to say Harvard's last trip to this stage of the NCAA tournament felt like an elbow to the face -- especially if that face belongs to Siyani Chambers. Early in the second half against Arizona, the Harvard guard took a wicked elbow to the mouth from Kevin Parrom of the Wildcats. Part of Chambers' front tooth chipped...

Harvard wants to 'make a statement' in NCAAs

There was a celebration. At the final buzzer, Siyani Chambers leaped into the arms of teammate Brandyn Curry. And Kyle Casey described the moment — Harvard 61, Cincinnati 57 — as "pure ecstasy." But an instant later, there was consolation. Casey and Chambers were kneeling beside an opponent, Bearcats senior forward Justin Jackson, who had crumpled to the ground, crying...

Cincinnati plays Harvard in a 5 vs 12 game on Thursday at 2:10 pm. Since I'm assuming a lot of us didn't follow the Ivy that close, here are 10 things about the Harvard Crimson.

Harvard clinches Ivy League, earns NCAA tourney bid for third year in a row

Being the first one through the door before the band has tuned a single instrument and well before the punch has had a chance to get spiked is not the preferred way to enter a social gathering. Not for this kind of party, though. Harvard clinched the first automatic bid for the NCAA tournament last night with a 70-58 victory over Yale at Payne Whitney Gymnasium. Siyani Chambers...

Might Harvard be shut out of Ivy POY race?

The race for the Ivy League title will likely not be decided until the March’s first weekend, when Yale travels north on I-90 to face Harvard, so while there are still a handful of games to be played, it is interesting to speculate which Ivy players are in the lead for the league’s player the year award. The race is more intriguing this season because Harvard, the presumptive...
