Maybe they should focus on basketball?

Harvard Quiz Bowl teams that won four championships between 2009 and 2011 have had those wins vacated because of a cheating scandal involving one student.

A security review revealed that a member of the Harvard Quiz Bowl team accessed information about competition questions prior to games, the National Academic Quiz Tournaments, LLC, which oversees the competitions, said in a statement posted this week on its website.

Quiz Bowl is a competition in which teams are challenged on their knowledge of a wide range of subjects including history, science and popular culture.
