Arizona Wildcats vs Harvard Crimson takes place in the NCAA 2013 third round on Saturday, with No. 14 seeded Harvard looking to cause another upset after knocking out No. 3 seeded New Mexico in the second round on Thursday. The game is scheduled to tip off at 6.10 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
No. 6 seeded Arizona will be the favorites coming into this game. The school has a rich history in the tournament, with 30 NCAA appearances as well as four Final Four appearances in their history. Meanwhile, in comparison Harvard have just a single tournament victory in their three appearances.
The Crimson should not be underestimated though, as they pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the second round by beating New Mexico, and that result should have sent a clear warning to Arizona not to take this fixture lightly.
Wesley Saunders' 18 points and Laurent Rivard's five 3-pointers for 17 points helped Harvard through, and if they can continue their good form today then Harvard should be able to compete with Arizona.
Saunders in particular is shooting at 53.8 percent this season, and has gotten to double digits in every single one of Harvard's 29 games this year so far. He will be the danger man that Arizona will be looking to stop.
However, Arizona themselves are an entirely different prospect for Harvard than New Mexico. Mark Lyons led the way for Arizona in their 81-64 win against Belmont in the second round, scoring 23 points. If Harvard let Lyons run wild today then they will be booking their seats back home after the game.
