Jeremy Lin celebrates Harvard’s first NCAA Tournament win (Picture)
Was anyone more excited about Harvard upsetting New Mexico during the NCAA Tournament Thursday than Jeremy Lin? We highly doubt it.
The prestigious school’s most notable basketball alumnus threw on his three goggles and added about three exclamation points to punctuate his excitement after watching his school win its first NCAA Tournament game. Harvard, a 14 seed from the Ivy League, defeated 3-seed New Mexico 68-62, becoming the fourth 14-seed to win a tournament game in the past 10 years (per SportsCenter).
Here’s the tweet Lin sent, probably on a computer he borrowed from the public library, and from a couch at a friend’s place:

As good as Lin was in college, he never once played in the tourney. His best season came when Harvard went 21-8 during his senior year and finished third in the Ivy League. This win was a long time coming for Harvard fans.
