In a tournament featuring the likes of No. 4 Connecticut and No. 22 Florida State, it was the Ivy League’s Harvard (6-0) that prevailed, winning three games in as many days over Utah, Florida State, and Central Florida to take home the title.There is not-unreasonable speculation that Harvard could break into the top-20 this week. CBS.com's Jeff Goodman has a story that starts this way:
After holding the Seminoles to 41 points in Friday’s semifinals, it was Harvard’s defense that delivered another victory in the final. The Crimson held Central Florida (4-2) to 21 points below its average in a 59-49 win yesterday at Imperial Arena.
Harvard has never been ranked in the Top 25.The Crimson could be joined soon as a ranked team by the Princeton women, who are off to a 5-0 start that includes a 15-point win over Villanova and a 17-point win over Marist, which had been among those "others receiving votes." The Tigers are coached by Dartmouth alum Courtney Banghart '00, a former Big Green assistant who has led them to a 50-8 record and Ivy League championships the past two seasons.
That needs to change Monday when the new poll is released.
