Harvard and Princeton kept very close to one another throughout most of the Ivy League season this year, but the breaking point finally came. Princeton had to take to the road this weekend, and came home with two losses, whereas the Crimson stayed home and clinched the title, beating Columbia on Friday and Cornell 65-56 today to make an unbeatable mathematical case for the auto-bid.
Harvard joins Florida Gulf Coast and Belmont as automatic qualifiers to the NCAA tournament, with all three bids being clinched in Saturday’s action. Harvard is making its second-straight appearance in the Big Dance.
