Harvard Quiz Bowl Championships Revoked for Cheating

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.
