Game is broadcast live on Espn3. A little confusing to watch as Harvard (the home team) is wearing their black uni's and Princeton is wearing white.
So, as O&B indicated, Tommy's team won yesterday 79-67 over Princeton. This means Harvard at least shares the Ivy title -- it depends on how Princeton does on Tuesday at Penn. You can bet Penn will be sky high for the game for a chance to deny their rival a shot at the league title.
Question-- has anyone figured out where a tiebreaker game would be played if they had to have one? The location would obviously be a big deal.
Believe it or not, Harvard may get a decent seed. CBS's RPI has them at #36, which would put them in line for a potential at-large bid if they miss out on the Ivy's automatic bid. I don't really think that will happen, but if they make the tourney I think they will get a #12 or #13. They would have a real shot at an upset.

Just pushing this back up because Princeton took care of business downing Penn to force the one game playoff. The part I find odd/interesting is that the playoff will be held at Yale for a neutral site. So the big trio of American colleges are joined in a different manner than normal(and as a neutral site, with any yalies attending rooting for both to lose?)
I had hoped Penn would step up to the plate.
At the end of the Harvard-Princeton game, the Princeton coach forced his players to sit and watch the storming-of-the-court celebration. Excellent coaching move. I hope TA can get his team ready.
Harvard & Princeton play at 4 p.m. Saturday on ESPN3. Of course, I hope to be watching Duke's semifinal then and following the score of the Harvard game online.
If, say, Michigan is a 12 (though if they beat Illinois I think they'll be an 11 or even a 10) and Harvard is a 13, in the same regional, and they upset the 5 and 4 respectively, they would meet in round two. The committee seems to like setting up those kinds of matchups. I'd love it, especially now in light of Jalen Rose's idiotic and destructive comments about Duke as discussed in another thread.
One game for all the Ivy League marbles - Harvard vs. Princeton, 4pm on Saturday at Yale?! I guess they wanted a 'neutral' site.
And c'mon, you just know that if Harvard wins, the selection committee is going to give them Duke in the first round.
sister school? more like annoying little brother school. harvard is the duke of massachusetts, duh.
Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.
You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner
You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke
Sun Belt=Arkansas-Little Rock, rpi and kenpom around 200
Big South=UNC-Asheville, numbers in the 140's
MAAC=St. Peter's, numbers around 100
Missouri Valley=Indiana State, ditto again
And that's with some really weak conferences like the Southland, MEAC, and SWAC yet to crown their champs. Even with the two extra 16's this year, Harvard doesn't get pushed below a 14. Harvard's RPI is 35 and Kenpom in the low 40's so it's possible that they could even get an at-large bid.
sold out in less than an hour. There is a lot of interest in our getting this done.
Just a reminder for anyone wants to open up their computer during the Duke game today, Harvard vs Princeton (at Yale) is live on ESPN3 today at 4pm est. The winner gets the automatic bid.
Harvard up 7 at half!! GO HARVARD!! Keep it up!
Princeton won on a last second shot. Blah.
