In a down year for college basketball in Massachusetts (wait — isn’t it always a bad year?), Harvard University stands as the state’s only shot at making an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Crimson, at 18-9 as of Monday, will play as the No. 2 seed in the Ivy League’s first conference tournament featuring the top four teams in the league.
Harvard will likely need to catapult past Princeton (21-6 overall, including 14-0 in the conference).
If they’re lucky enough to get in, the team’s odds to win the NCAA Tournament would be extremely long, to say the least.
For what it’s worth, Boston University had a good season, too, but lost in the Patriot League Conference Semi-finals Sunday and certainly won’t be an at-large team.
Otherwise in Massachusetts? Trash. UMass Amherst is 14-17 (4-14 in A-10 play) and Boston College is 9-22 (2=16 in the ACC). Yikes.
