Last month marked the beginning of the most unique playoff systems in all of Division I college basketball. One that challenges its competitors with postseason pressure from tip to buzzer from mid January to early March. The 14-Game Tournament. Yet the question persists: Should the Ivies follow the rest of Division I and institute a year-end conference tournament to determine which team will collect the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament?
The numbers: 6-3 overall, 173th RPI, 160th Sagarin, 174th Pomeroy
The recent results: lost 67-56 at Lehigh (12/10), won 91-79 vs. Long Island (12/14).
The upcoming schedule: at Albany (2-5) on Saturday, Colgate (4-5) on Tuesday, at Boston College (6-2) on Thursday
