Yale University Leading Charge to March Madness

Yale may well be this year’s automatic bid from the Ivy League to March Madness.

We figured we’d check in on the Ivy League men’s basketball standings again since we’re coming upon March Madness. If you’re wondering why we focus on Ivy League men’s basketball on our college admissions blog, it’s because the Ivy League annually sends one representative to the NCAA Tournament and the further a team advances in the NCAA Tournament, the more applications the school generally receives the subsequent year. So which Ivy League school currently sits atop the men’s basketball standings? Wonder no more!

Yale Sits Atop 2019-2020 Ivy League Men’s Basketball Standings

Yale University, boasting a 22-6 overall record, is 10-2 in Ivy League play — good for sole possession of first place. At 20-7 overall and 9-3 in Ivy League play, Harvard University sits in second place. At 13-12 overall and 8-4 in Ivy League play, Princeton University sits in third place. Next comes the University of Pennsylvania at 14-11 overall and 6-6 within Ivy League play. Brown University has an identical 6-6 record in Ivy League play, though the team is 13-12 overall. Dartmouth College is 12-15 overall and 5-7 within Ivy League play. Cornell University is 6-19 overall and 3-9 within Ivy League play. And in last place sits Columbia University at 6-22 overall and 1-11 in Ivy League play.

Will Yale University, winners of four straight games, take the 2019-2020 Ivy League crown and punch their ticket to March Madness? Will Harvard University, winners of six straight games, sneak up on the Bulldogs? Let us know your thoughts by posting a Comment below. We look forward to hearing from you!
