    With Ivy League teams ten games into their “14-game tournament” to determine who will represent the league in the NCAA tournament, it’s clear that the race for the automatic bid is down to two teams: Harvard and Yale. The Crimson have won the Ivy League’s automatic bid each of the last two seasons and entered…

    Entering tonight’s Columbia-Brown game, it didn’t seem that any other Ivy League team was catching the league leaders, Yale and Harvard. Following tonight’s CU-BU, it is now clear the conference title with fall either of the teams from Cambridge and New Haven, respectively: in a game where it seemed officials felt the need to interject…

    Harvard entered this weekend faced with tough games against Princeton and Penn, with the outcomes likely to shape the Ivy League race.

    After playing his best basketball of the 2012-13 season during a two-game stretch in which Harvard beat Penn and Princeton on consecutive nights, averaging 17.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 8.0 blocks per game on that weekend in mid-February, Harvard center Kenyatta Smith was able to earn more minutes in the Crimson’s front court rotation. In…

  9. Columbia seeking to challenge Harvard, Princeton in the Ivy League

    In most years, the Ivy League is nothing more than a blip on the radar of the college basketball scene. This year, however, is unlike most years. Harvard garnered national attention even prior to the season beginning after defeating New Mexico in last year’s NCAA Tournament and returning two of their top players in Kyle…

    To say that Jerome Allen’s Penn Quakers had a rough go of it prior to the start of Ivy League play would be an understatement. The Quakers entered Saturday’s game against Princeton with a 2-10 record, with five of the defeats being decided by margins of six points or less. But there is talent on…

  11. Resume-building opportunity slips past Harvard with Wesley Saunders sidelined

    Jan 8, 2014, 9:55 PM EDT

    Tommy Amaker

    Given their overall non-conference schedule and the strength of it, Harvard’s games at Colorado and UConn were contests circled by many as important games for the Crimson. Why? Tommy Amaker’s team has the talent to merit an at-large berth, and a win in either (or both) of those games likely would have given Harvard the…

  12. Princeton blows out Pacific, proves they will contend with Harvard in the Ivy League

    TJ Bray

    In Ivy League basketball circles, which soon expanded to national basketball circles at the conclusion of the 2013 NCAA Tournament, all of the talk during the summer months revolved around Harvard. Rightfully so, to an extent. The Crimson returned virtually their entire team, along with welcoming back Kyle Casey and Brandyn Curry. They were the…

  13. Colorado’s second half run results in a missed opportunity for Harvard

    Nov 24, 2013, 7:58 PM EDT

    Tommy Amaker

    At halftime of their game at Colorado on Sunday afternoon, the Harvard Crimson had the look of a team poised to grab a needed resume-building victory. Leading 42-30, the Crimson executed well on both ends of the floor, finding quality shots offensively while limiting Colorado’s quality looks on the other end. But as the Crimson…

    Brown guard Joe Sharkey is fortunate to be practicing again for the Bears after a brutal beating last May left him unconscious and bleeding.

    Shonn Miller missed the final four games of the 2012-13 season with a shoulder injury. Despite having the summer months to get healthy, the same shoulder continues to nag Miller, and there’s a strong chance he will miss the entire 2013-14 season. From Cornell’s preseason prospectus which was released last week: “…[R]eturning first-team All-Ivy League…

    On the heels of the most successful season in the history of the program, reaching the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive season and upsetting New Mexico in the Round of 64, the Harvard Crimson are expected to build on that success in 2013-14. Point guard Siyani Chambers, shooting guard Laurent Rivard and forward Wesley…

    Jonah Travis, Tommy Amaker

    In the most highly anticipated season in Harvard basketball history — in fact, perhaps in Ivy League history — where there is already speculation of the Crimson beginning the season ranked in the Top 25, all but winning the Ivy League, and even making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, the pressure is also…

  21. Summertime in the Ivy League

    Jul 26, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    College basketball coaches collectively rejoiced in January of 2012 when a new rule was passed stipulating that coaches would be afforded the opportunity to work with their players – including incoming freshmen – over the summer months. As a refresher to the exact rule from the NCAA: In men’s basketball, a student-athlete who is enrolled in summer…

    TV time is hard to come by for any basketball league outside the BCS. The Mountain West and WCC have been able to grab a little more than most, simply because they play late enough to fill a time slot that East Coast markets don’t really know what to do with. As John Templon of…

    Harvard’s attempt to repeat as Ivy League champions just got tougher.

    Zack Rosen, Shaam Polen

    Zack Rosen is one of those players who make college basketball a joy to watch. In his four-year career at Penn, he was the head, heart and guts of the Quaker program, playing at an incredibly high level every time he stepped on the floor. He averaged 18.2 points, 5.2 assists and 1.4 steals per…
