NEW YORK -- Former Harvard standout and current Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin '10 will be featured on CBS's "60 Minutes" Sunday evening.

Check your local listings.

Lin, who burst onto the international sports scene last year as a member of the New York Knicks, is averaging 13.0 points, 6.1 assists and 1.7 steals per game as a guard for the Houston Rockets this season.

Lin, a 2010 Harvard graduate, won the ESPY Award for "Best Breakthrough Athlete" in 2012. He scored 136 points in his first five starts, the most by an NBA player since the merger with the ABA in 1976-77.

In addition to his success on the court, Lin earned the honor of being the first person with Ivy League ties to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated in consecutive weeks (Feb. 20 and 27).
