The Ivy League is so different from the rest of DI basketball. There’s the relatively low status of athletes on an Ivy campus, the Friday/Saturday double headers and the refusal to stage a post-season tournament.
Then there are artifacts like today’s game between Harvard and Dartmouth. Right now, the Crimson are 2-0 atop the league standings, and Dartmouth is dragging bottom at 0-2. What’s odd about that is that the two teams have only played one another in league play thus far. Dartmouth hosted Harvard for a ten-point loss on January 12, played non-DI foe Colby College on January 17, then traveled to Harvard for today’s 82-77 OT thriller that also ended in a loss. Barring some sort of mathematical unlikelihood that only an Ivy grad could calculate, these two schools are done with one another for the year already.
