Harvard held a small lead throughout the game, but Harvard was able to withstand every run from the New Mexico Lobos. Coach Tommy Amaker outcoached Steve Alford getting revenge for being beat by Alford and Indiana in the 1987 regional semi-finals when Tommy played for Duke. The Lobos were projected to be a strong team to reach the final four. Harvard (20-9) will next play sixth seeded Arizona.
