The nerds from Cambridge almost upset the jocks from Chapel Hill today as UNC squeaked out an undeserving win over Harvard 67-65.
The Crimson did exactly what they always do in the NCAA tourney, just keep hanging around, controlling the game tempo until their opponent falls asleep and the nightmare ends with them losing somehow. But it seems the no-doze finally kicked in for the Tarheels late in the game, even though they did everything they could to lose the damn thing.
Wesley Saunders put in work for Harvard, with 26 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals.
UNC will play the winner of Arkansas (5-seed) and Wofford (12-seed) on Saturday, let’s go Terriers.
