Undermanned, non-athletic scholarship program Harvard upsets nationally ranked Boston College

Story here:
Coach Al Skinner offered that diagnosis after the 17th-ranked Eagles were humiliated, 82-70, by undermanned Harvard before 3,174 last night at Conte Forum. Harvard (8-6) beat a ranked opponent for the first time in school history three days after BC humbled No. 1 North Carolina, 85-78, in Chapel Hill.

How split is BC’s basketball personality?

“It’s not one person. I wish it was just one person because we could make that adjustment,” Skinner said. “It is the personality of this team. We play up and we play down and we did that this evening.

“You hope to be up more than down, but the fact of the matter is we as a team have to take responsibility for what happens on the floor.”

The architect of the most significant regular-season victory in Crimson history was junior guard Jeremy Lin, who connected on 11-of-16 from the floor for 27 points and added eight assists and six steals. Lin and his mates refused to be beaten. The Crimson played stubborn defense and executed a patient spread offense that produced points while draining the shot clock.
