NCAA men: Harvard 61, Cincinnati 57

SPOKANE, Wash. – Siyani Chambers scored 11 points, including five straight in the final two minutes, and 12th-seeded Harvard won its second NCAA tournament game in history, upsetting Cincinnati 61-57 Thursday.

Wesley Saunders led the Crimson (27-4) with 12 points as Harvard pulled off an upset for the second straight year. Last year, Harvard upset New Mexico as a 14th seed.

The Crimson became the first Ivy League school with NCAA tournament wins in consecutive years since Princeton in 1983 and 1984.

Harvard never trailed after the opening moments. It played with confidence and scrap against the No. 5 seed Bearcats, who shared the American Athletic Conference regular season title.

Sean Kilpatrick led seed Cincinnati (27-7) with 18 points, but the Bearcats failed to win a tournament game for the second straight year.
