    Johnny and the Cardinal and Tommy and the Crimson (Harvard in!)

    Johnny's Stanford Cardinal is doing fairly well in the early going. They are 5-0 and head into the preseason NIT Championship game against Syracuse Friday at 5 p.m. EST in MSG. They got there by defeating Okie State 82-67. Here is the Daily News story. Looks like it's on ESPN.

    Whether Stanford is for real this year remains to be seen, but they are on the right track for now.

    Don't forget about Harvard and Tommy Amaker

    Tommy Amaker has the Crimson at 4-0 facing #22 FSU at 4:30pm today in the finals of the Battle for Atlantis tournament in the Bermudas after blowing out Utah and Loyola Marymount (which beat UCLA). How many mid-majors do you see on the good end of blowouts? Looks like they got some firepower.

    Statement games for both programs. Let's go Crimson/Cardinal and of course DUKE!

    Not quite competely accurate with regard to Harvard/Tommy.

    They beat Utah in the first round of the Battle for Atlantis. The game against Loyola was not part of the tournament, I think.
    They do play FSU today in the semis. The winner of that game is likely to face UConn in the finals (UConn plays S.Fla in the other semi). Here is the bracket.

    Win or lose today, Harvard will play UConn in a regular season game in a couple weeks on December 8th.

    Is espn.com correct that it's currently 7-0 Harvard after 11 full minutes of play? That seems impossible...
    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    The 7 part seems completely reasonable given FSU's defensive abilities. The 0 part seems a bit surprising, but FSU tends to be pretty terrible offensively.

    6:53 left in the 1st half, Harvard 8, FSU 7.

    Harvard is currently 1-16 from the field, for a 5.9% FG percentage. FSU is burning it up at 3-21, or 14.3%.

    If either of these teams can hit 1/3rd of their shots, this one could be a blow out.

    Harvard has been on an orgy of points lately... they've scored 4 points in the past 4 minutes of play. Simply unheard of in this game.

    With 12 minutes to go, it is Harvard 21 and FSU 16.

    Upset Alert: Harvard vs FSU -- Harvard winning in the 2nd half

    12 mins left in the 2nd half. Score is an ugly 21-18 (yes, that's accurate). It was 14-14 at half. 13 combined FGs so far.

    Its on Versus (at least it is on FIOS)

    I just saw 21-18 w/ 11:34 to go in the SECOND half and thought the TV must have had their graphic wrong. But you all have confirmed this is just a very odd game.

    Now 26-24 Harvard with ~8 minutes remaining. ESPN's "game flow" graphic just teased me by adjusting the Y-axis to a 40-point scale. Apparently, they think this one's going to end up a barn-burner.

    Stanford 25, Syracuse 24 at the half. Cardinal have had no trouble getting into the heart of the Syracuse zone, but their decision-making once they get in there has been shaky.

    SilkyJ said it's on Versus in another thread. I can't confirm that since I don't get that channel.

    Yea didn't see this thread but it is on Versus. Harvard just hit a three with 50 seconds left, got a steal, and made both FTs, up 8.

    As I type, FSU layup to cut it to 6 with 35 seconds.

    Harvard out-toughs #20 FSU to win 46-41. Can Stanford hold on against #5 Syracuse? Tied 43-43 with 13 min. left in game.

    Meanwhile ...

    With six minutes to go, BC is tied with UC Riverside, which was picked to finish fifth in the Big West. Yuck!

    Not surprising, Stanford plays solid defense and has good ball movement. With 7:51 left, Stanford owns the largest lead of the game 50-45.
