UConn moved up to a 10-seed while Harvard remained an 11-seed in the latest bracketology.
Harvard remained in place from Lunardi's March 2 update while UConn moved up from a 12-seed to a 10-seed. In Lunardi's latest brackets, UConn would face future Big East foe and 7-seed Memphis in the South regional. Harvard would play 6-seed Gonzaga in the Midwest regional.
The Huskies' Big East conference foe Notre Dame is currently slotted as the 6-seed in the South regional which sets up a potential Sweet 16 matchup.
Connecticut finished the regular season 18-12 (8-10 Big East). The Huskies will play DePaul in the First Round of the Big East Tournament on March 6 at 7 p.m. Harvard won at least a share of the Ivy League regular season title by going 12-2 in conference and 26-4 overall. The Crimson could be forced into a one-game playoff against Penn for the Ivy title and the autobid into the NCAA Tournament if Penn defeats Princeton on March 6.
