Tommy Amaker’s sixth win against a BCS opponent as Harvard’s head coach was the least surprising. The Crimson (5-0) dominated from the opening tip against a struggling Utah (1-3) squad that is still looking for the first win against a non NAIA Divison I program.
Keith Wright and Corbin Miller led Harvard with 13 points apiece as the Crimson jumped out to a 5-0 lead and never trailed. 10 Crimson players scored for Amaker in just their second ever victory against a PAC 12 opponent.
Three Utes (Josh Watkins, Blake Wilkinson and Chris Hines) finished in double-digits, scoring more than two-thirds of the team’s points. The trio combined to hit all four of the team’s 3-pointers, as the rest of the roster went 0-for-6.
Utah shot 36 percent and turned the ball over 16 times which resulted in 16 Crimson points. On the other side, Harvard turned the ball over eight times, shot 44 percent and controlled the glass (38-32).
With the win, Harvard earned a semifinals matchup Friday against Florida State at 4:30 p.m. on Versus. Utah will play in the nightcap against UMass at 9:30 p.m. with the game being televised on HDNet
