First to the Dance: Harvard Gains Tournament Berth, 67 Teams to Go
Harvard University clinched the Ivy League title Friday night. The championship proved especially sweet for the Crimson as they defeated rival Yale 70-58 to win its league's regular season crown.
Crimson basketball has witnessed a renaissance under former Duke guard Tommy Amaker as head coach. With one scheduled game to go, Harvard boasts a 12-1 league record. The Cambridge, Massachusetts university earned its third consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament with its triumph over Yale. The school had never won a league championship in basketball prior to Amaker's arrival.
The victory makes Harvard the first of 68 teams to gain a bracket position.
