BOSTON -- Jeremy Lin hit a shot from half court at the buzzer of the third overtime, giving Harvard a wild 87-85 win over William & Mary Sunday in a matchup of the nation's two oldest colleges.
Up until Lin's winning basket, it was William & Mary that had scored the final points in every period of the contest.
It looked like that would be the case again in the third OT.
That set up Lin's big shot.
The Crimson inbounded the ball to Lin, who raced up the right side of the floor.
Lin was bumped at midcourt by W&M's Danny Sumner and then by McCurdy as he stepped into a shot from just over the half-court line. A foul was called but it didn't matter as Lin nailed the shot, negating a big comeback for the Tribe, which trailed by as many as 13 in the second half.
Lin finished with 19 points, 9 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 steals in 46 minutes while McNally had 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting from 3-point range.
Quinn McDowell paced the Tribe with 23 points.
