Fifth-seeded Cincinnati made a series of runs at Harvard after falling behind by as many as nine points early in the second half of their opening-round NCAA tournament game, but the Bearcats never managed to forge a tie or take the lead. Sophomore point guard Siyani Chambers had five of his 12 points in the final two minutes to help 12th-seeded Harvard hang on for a 61-57 victory that sets up a round of 32 clash with either Michigan State or Delaware.
