Giant NCAA task for Harvard

SALT LAKE CITY — Harvard will not get the opportunity to size up New Mexico’s physical advantage until the Crimson step onto the court at EnergySolutions Arena for their second-round West Region matchup against third-seeded Lobos Thursday night.

The Crimson will go with a four-guard lineup whose biggest starter will be 6-foot-8-inch sophomore forward Kenyatta Smith, while New Mexico will counter with a gargantuan frontcourt led by redshirt sophomore Alex Kirk, a 7-foot, 250-pounder who averaged 11.9 points and a team-leading 7.9 rebounds this season.
