NCAA Tournament Day 3, Part 4

Michigan State 80 - Harvard 73
Harvard did a hell of a job making this a game. It looked like MSU would pull away when it was 45-33 at halftime. But Harvard chipped away with a combination of defense (11 MSU turnovers), limiting the Spartans to one shot (their 33 rebounds matched Michigan State), and getting to the line (they shot 30 free throws to MSU's 22, and that's including 8 free throws from when Harvard was trying to extend the game). But in the end, the Spartans were just a little too good at both ends of the floor.

Connecticut 77 - Villanova 65
Live by the three, sometimes you die by the three. Duke found out, and now Villanova. They started out hot, but ended up just 11-for-31.
