More national coverage and updated lines

So far this week, we've seen a book devoted to Ivy hoops and a Wall Street Journal piece saying that the Harvard-Cornell game (tonight, 7 p.m. ET, Ithaca, N.Y.) may be “[t]he game of the year in college basketball.”

Well, now Sports Illustrated jumps into the fray with a feature on Harvard basketball. The story focuses on coach Tommy Amaker and star guard Jeremy Lin, who may be headed for the NBA. SI also had an interesting table with the story, replicated below:

Zach Klitzman gave his picks for yesterday's games. All the favorites cruised, and Klitzman didn't do too badly, going 2-1.  But his line-setting prognostication skills weren't quite as good; here are the previously unavailable spreads for today's action:

Harvard at Cornell -8
