Let’s check in on the Ivy League basketball standings. While league play hasn’t yet begun, all eight Ivy League universities have kicked off their 2012-2013 campaigns. In men’s basketball, Harvard University currently sits atop the league with a 7-5 record. At 6-5, Columbia University sits in second. Al other Ivy League schools currently have losing overall records. Cornell University is at 6-8, Princeton University at 5-7, Brown University at 4-7, Yale University at 4-10, and Dartmouth College and the University of Pennsylvania at 2-9. But, remember, at least one of these schools will qualify for the NCAA Tournament since the Ivy League sends its champion with the automatic bid.
And how about the women? The Ivy League sends at least one representative among the women to the NCAA Tournament as well. While the Ivy League women’s teams haven’t yet begun playing against each other, their seasons are also well underway. Princeton University sits atop the Ivy League standings with an overall record of 8-5. Penn sits in second at 6-4. Harvard sits in third at 7-5, Cornell in fourth at 6-5, Brown in fifth at 4-6, Yale in sixth at 3-8, Columbia in seventh at 2-10, and perennial women’s basketball powerhouse Dartmouth in last at 1-11.
