The Harvard Crimson have reached the NCAA tournament for the second straight year by winning the Ivy League conference title. This season, they will hope to win their first tournament game in school history.
Harvard is the no. 14 seed out in the West region and will face the No. 3 seed New Mexico Lobos in the second round of the tournament. That game will tip off Thursday at 9:50 p.m. ET in Salt Lake City, Utah. The winner of that game will either face the No. 6 Arizona Wildcats or the No. 11 Belmont Bruins.
Harvard is the only New England team to earn an NCAA invitation this season. The Northeastern region overall placed quite a few teams in the tournament, as the Big East led all conferences with eight teams invited to the tournament. Other smaller Eastern schools, such as the Albany Great Danes and the LIU-Brooklyn Blackbirds, also received invitations to the big dance.
