AROUND THE WEB:

♦ Harvard’s upset of New Mexico late Thursday night might have messed up most of America’s NCAA tournament brackets, but those with Harvard ties were celebrating the win.

The school’s only current NBA alumnus, Rockets guard Jeremy Lin, posted a message and photo on Facebook, writing: YYYYYYYEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you…. #threepointgoggles

Tweeted the Harvard Lampoon: America, we are sorry for messing up your brackets and also your financial system and everything else

Not all Harvard alumni were believers. President Barack Obama predicted a New Mexico win, even though he attended Harvard Law School and is close friends with the father of Crimson sophomore walk-on guard Alex Nesbitt.

Said Nesbitt in the days leading up to the game: “If we were to pull off an upset, [the president] would know about it and be excited for sure.”

♦ The Royce White saga continues, as the would-be Rockets rookie tweeted that he’s leaving his D-League team and returning to Houston in order to prepare for next season. White, who battles anxiety disorder, has yet to play for the Rockets this season.

Tweeted White: Have been advised by our team physician it is most logical I be in Houston the remainder of the season. Thank @rgvvipers for having me.

Added White: Working out in Houston to transition to next year has been medically deemed the healthiest option. I’m excited to get to work.

The Rockets, who reportedly did not take part in White’s decision, said only that White is still on the Rio Grande Valley Vipers roster.

Following negative feedback, White tweeted later: Don’t understand the uproar because I’m working out in Houston… Lol relax ppl Showing you’re too high strung over sports.

♦ Lakers center Dwight Howard turned up at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday, working the Delta Airlines check-in counter and taking boarding passes for a flight to Hawaii. Accompanied by the Laker Girls, he also ran a trivia contest.

“I am part of Delta, the team. They are the official airline for the Laker Girls and the Lakers,” Howard said. “This is a great experience for me to come out and enjoy L.A.”

It provided a rare lighthearted moment in what has mostly been a rough season for Howard, due to be a free agent this offseason. He had little to say regarding his future Thursday, only joking: “Will I re-sign with Delta? That’s a good one.”

ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On March 22, 1995, the Celtics raised a number to the rafters in honor of which player?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I’m exceptionally proud of our guys. They had to believe. We talked about preparation, we talked about passion, we talked about belief. We battled a really good basketball team in a tough environment. I’m very proud of our guys.” – Harvard coach Tommy Amaker, after Thursday’s 68-62 upset of New Mexico in the NCAA tournament

STAT OF THE DAY: 12-0-1 – The Bruins’ record in their last 13 games against the Senators, after Thursday night’s 2-1 victory

‘NET RESULTS (mobile users, check the website to see the videos): Devils goalie Martin Brodeur gets credit for a goal against the Hurricanes in Thursday night’s game.

This video pokes fun at the Sabres’ “fire sale.”

TRIVIA ANSWER: The late Reggie Lewis (35)

SOOTHING SOUNDS: Jeremy Clyde of Chad and Jeremy was born on this day in 1941.
