(Princeton vs. Harvard) vs. Yale


On Saturday Princeton’s Douglas Davis hit a jump shot at the buzzer. Princeton won over Harvard, 63-62, and will go to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2004.

Despite the fact that the two schools were rivals that night, there was apparently some solidarity between the universities.

According to an Associated Press piece in the New York Times, “Before the game, Harvard and Princeton students chanted ‘Yale sucks!’”

Neither school was playing Yale. Yale was, however, hosting the game. [Image via]
