While sports analysts lament over Harvard's bracket-busting win over the favored New Mexico in NCAA tournament, NBA star Jeremy Lin is telling critics I told you so.
The Harvard alum forcasted that the Ivy Leauge school would advance. He tweeted Thursday night, "Getting ready to watch HARVARD beat new mexico on TNT!! #gocrimson."
Jeremy really rubbed it in after the Crimson pulled off a 68-62 upset against the Lobos. "YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you.... #threepointgoggles #bracketbusters "
He also tweeted a picture of himself wearing a Harvard t-shirt.
The win means a huge set back for bracket affictionados like the New York Times statistician Nate Silver who reportedly predicted that New Mexico would go further in the NCAA tournament.
Harvard the Next Basketball Powerhouse?
One win does not a NCAA champion make. Yet, Thursday win harkens back to a time when the New York Knicks and the entire NBA overlooked a certian Harvard player. When he was finally put in the game, Lin-sanity insued!
