Yale beat rival Harvard, take Ivy League automatic bid into March.
A rivalry that dates back longer than I have been alive (WAY LONGER), Yale defeated Harvard 97-85 in the Ivy League Championship to earn their big back into March.
At halftime, the game was neck and neck, Yale lead 43-42. Harvard came out of halftime on a roll and was soon up 7. Miye Oni of Yale headed to the bench with 4 fouls in the middle of the second half and Harvard thought they might have a chance. But the teamwork and lights out shooting kept the Bulldogs in charge. Yale had a 15-0 run to be up 12 with 8:48 left in the game.
When you look at the box score, you thought that Harvard would have won. Bryce Aiken put up 38 points for the Crimson, but it was not enough. Yale had FIVE players in double digits and shot a remarkable 61% from the field including 46% from downtown and 93% from the charity stripe.
Following the Bulldogs 15-0 run, the feeling of March Madness was in their hands. The Bulldogs head back to the NCAA tournament after missing out the past two years.
