Ivy becomes last to add conference tournament

The Ivy League will no longer be the only Division I conference without a conference tournament, as it announced that a four-team bracket to determine its NCAA tournament bid will start in 2017.

Tigers do their part with 84-65 win

Princeton cruised to a near-20 point victory despite Dartmouth's late efforts. Now, all Princeton can do is wait for the conclusion of Yale's game against Columbia. Box score

Princeton blowing out Dartmouth at half

The Tigers' 44-23 lead over the Big Green is a big cushion, but it won't mean anything unless Yale loses to Columbia. Box score

Ivy League clinching scenarios

Yale could clinch its first NCAA tourney appearance since 1962. A one-game playoff against Princeton is still possible if Yale loses.

Princeton edged out by Harvard

The Tigers failed to complete a second-half rally and fall to the Crimson 73-71. Harvard spoils Princeton's attempt to keep pace with Ivy League leader Yale, which now can clinch its first NCAA tournament berth since 1962 on Saturday. Box score

Harvard holds off Princeton at half

The Tigers, 2-of-7 from 3, need to come out roaring in the second half to overcome a 43-35 deficit. With a Princeton loss, Yale would get closer to a regular-season Ivy League title. Box score

Watch: Princeton vs. Harvard

Princeton and Yale are battling for first in the Ivy League and an NCAA tournament bid. Princeton needs to beat Harvard to keep pace with Yale, which hasn't made the tourney since 1962 and will surely throw its support to the Crimson. Streaming live on ESPN3
