In the favorite upset pick of the day, fans can watch Cincinnati vs. Harvard live online in the 2014 NCAA tournament round of 64. March Madness brackets love to pick the 12 versus 5 seed upset and this is the cream of the crop in 2014. The Harvard Crimson are tournament tested and made noise in the NCAA tournament last year with a victory over New Mexico.
Fans of March Madness can watch Cincinnati vs. Harvard live online at 2:10 pm EST on Thursday, March 20th. The game can also be seen on TNT and will be played in Spokane, Washington. Both teams had quite a ways to travel, especially considering they are in the East region.
Even though Harvard continues to draw attention, especially after President Obama picked them to pull the upset, but Cincinnati should not be overlooked. The Bearcats received a five seed for a reason. Led by Senior guard Sean Kilpatrick, the Bearcats are an athletic, defensive minded team. Their team defense was ranked 6th in the nation, holding opponents to 58.3 points per game. Harvard, who has a balanced, active offense, will struggle against the suffocating Cincinnati defense.
For the 2014 NCAA tournament audience that tunes in to watch Cincinnati vs. Harvard live online, it will be a fun match up. Harvard coach Tommy Amaker, a Duke University product, has worked hard to establish a legitimate program at an Ivy League school. In fact, he has done such a good job, rumors are swirling that some major programs have come calling. But Harvard is focused on one thing right now. Winning. When asked about the coaching rumors, Amaker said, “There’s nothing to address. There’s nothing for me to talk about, to comment on. I can’t address speculation about so many things all the time.”
Harvard is marked by control and discipline whereas Cincinnati likes to create chaos and confusion. If it turns into a track meet, Harvard could be in trouble. Even though it is a popular NCAA tournament upset special, fans shouldn’t expect a blow out. If Harvard can dictate the pace of the game and contain Sean Kilpatrick, they should get their upset, in a close one.
No matter who 2014 NCAA tournament fans are cheering for, they can get excited about the opportunity to watch Cincinnati vs. Harvard live online.
