Princeton Captures Ivy League, Heads To 2011 NCAA Tournament

For the first time since 2004, the Princeton Tigers are going dancing after defeating the Harvard Crimson 63-62 on a Douglas Davis buzzer beater at the horn. Since the Ivy League does not host a conference tournament, the champion of the regular season wins the automatic bid. Since the Tigers and Crimson were tied at the top of the standings, they were forced to play a tiebreaker today at Yale. And after a fantastic game for the Ivy title, the Tigers are going to March Madness.

  1. Congratulations to Princeton on the last-second win! I wish the game had been televised where I am. Looks like Harvard will have to wait to see if they get an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. They do have some impressive wins this season. They beat Colorado and Boston University at home. They also defeated Boston College and George Washington on the road. Harvard is definitely a team the NCAA selection committee will discuss thoroughly.
