The first real bracket buster of the tournament, 14th-seeded Harvard's 68-62 victory over third-seeded New Mexico, was not a good moment for the majority of those who had taken part in an office or online pool.

It was a great moment for one person in particular though: Jeremy Lin.

Not long after the victory, Lin sent out the following tweet: "YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you.... #bracketbusters."
