Harvard Tops #17 Boston College: Box Score of the Day

    
January 8th, 2009

CHN now features a live scoreboard, stats, standings, etc.. here. Occasionally, we'll be featuring a box score of the day, with some commentary on why the box score is interesting. It might be involve a huge upset, a big personal effort, some odd statistical, occurrences, or other intriguing tidbit.

 

Box Score of the Day:

Today's pick is.. Harvard's upset of recent darling Boston College. Fresh off their upset win over former #1 UNC, the Eagles fell flat against cross-town rival Harvard.

 

This result is more amusing than anything else. In the recent polls, BC moved up as high as 17th in the AP, while in my own Top 50, I had BC 41st. This prompted a few to claim I was a complete idiot (which is not a rarity.) This merely is a reminder that upsets are called upsets for a reason.. sometimes good teams lose to mediocre ones (ie, UNC to BC), and sometimes mediocre ones lose to slightly more mediocre ones (BC to Harvard). This game is merely a reminder is that BC is still what they were the day before they knocked off UNC, a fringe tourney team that still has a lot of work left to do.

 

Check out the line of Jeremy Lin below. Harvard's leader has been rock solid all year, and his 27 point, 8 assist, 6 steal line is just one of many stat-stuffing performances.
