After pulling off one of the biggest upsets of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday against heavily-favored New Mexico, the Harvard Crimson looked like they could be the darlings of this year’s march madness. That bid ended today as the Arizona Wildcats won in decisive fashion, 74-51.The wildcats jumped out to an early 23-7 lead and never looked back.

They now await the winner of tomorrow’s Ohio State-Iowa state matchup.
