Men's Basketball Eliminated from Postseason Contention After Back-to-Back Losses Against Princeton

The last two times the Crimson was in the Ivy League tournament, it lost the final game to the host team. During the 2020 season, it seems their fortune would be reversed, as it was finally the one hosting the tournament. Following two losses against Princeton (21-5, 11-2 Ivy) this past week, Harvard (13-12, 5-8) was officially eliminated from postseason contention and will not have the opportunity to defend its home court in the Ivy league tournament.
