(NECN: Julie Loncich, Somerville, Mass.) - "It's the tourney, that's how it goes. It's the madness. You have to get into it, if not, why are you here?" Harvard fan Mitch Cote-Crosskill said.
At times, it was a bit painful to watch. Harvard just couldn't pull it off again, leaving fans at the Thirsty Scholar in Somerville, Mass a bit deflated.
"I wish that they had figured out the numbers a little better here to score more points. Aside from that, strong year, good guys," fan Mike Banach said.
"It was a difficult performance to watch tonight. Didn't find their stride early on which I think really hurt them. Arizona had great tempo . They couldn't get into it," Harvard alum Christopher Petrella said.
But apart from the 23-point loss, Harvard's basketball team still won its first NCAA tournament game in more than 100 years. It's a team that was built from the ground up after coach Tommy Amaker came on board in 2007 and put this Ivy League team on the map. It's a team that dazzled fans on Thursday by winning a game most thought impossible.
"They have potential, just not on the big stage," Cote-Crosskill said.
"They made it this far which is really impressive. They made Cambridge proud. Happy to be an alum," Petrella said.
