2013 NCAA Tournament Video: No. 14 Harvard Makes School History on Opening Day
The biggest upset of the first day of the 2013 NCAA Tournament came from the Ivy League.
Yes, the Ivy League and Harvard shocked the world with a monumental upset over No. 3 New Mexico. The Lobos, who were a dominate force within the Mountain West Conference all season long, were stunned by the 14th-seeded Crimson on Thursday night.
Sophomore forward Wesley Saunders keyed the team’s success, scoring 18 points in the win, but it was a balanced attack for the Crimson that included four scorers who finished in double figures offensively. The Lobos made a few stabs at Harvard’s lead, but for the most part, the Crimson went wire to wire in seizing victory.
The upset meant a lot for many people across the country.
First of all, the victory marked Harvard’s first win ever within the NCAA Tournament. A season ago, the Crimson snapped a 65-year drought by qualifying for the Big Dance, but now in their second consecutive appearance, Harvard has secured a history-making win.
The loss for New Mexico is a crucial blow to many brackets, as the Lobos had been presenting the feel of a potential Elite 8 or Final Four squad heading into the start of the NCAA Tournament.
Harvard, yes Harvard, has quickly put an end to that.
The Crimson are advancing forward into the Round of 32 where they will meet No. 6 Arizona, who advanced by knocking off No. 11 Belmont in convincing fashion.
