Ivy League Basketball: Week 3 Conferences Notes and Recap
College basketball season is now in full swing, and the Ivy League conference has been struggling as of late. At this point in the season, not a single team in the conference is above .500. Remembering Harvard's incredibly fast start last season and how they emerged as a key competitor in the conference at this point in the season, it's too early to tell who might take the initiative and lead the Ivy League into March Madness.
Here are some notes about Week 3.
Harvard will definitely still contend for a conference title this year. Despite fielding a relatively new square this season, the Crimson are still playing relatively well as a team. Considering their 3-3 record, they will not play at the same caliber as last season, where they landed a Top-25 ranking in December.
Wesley Saunders has filled as the top scorer for the squad as the Crimson look to build off of a nice 73-64 win over Fordham (1-6).
Princeton's early tests against Rutgers and No. 6 Syracuse have really helped the squad prepare for conference play this season. The Tigers played incredibly well with a 62-50 win over Kent State (5-3) and will continue to improve as the season goes on.
Penn, another preseason favorite, has started the season off on a sluggish note. Finally earning themselves a win against Binghampton (2-6) this week and a solid effort against Penn State (4-3), it seems unclear how consistent this Quaker squad actually is.
Columbia's early win over Villanova was certainly impressive, but dropping three straight, including two this week, has not been pretty.
Cornell (4-5) and Brown (3-4)
These two squads have had some early ups and downs.
Dartmouth (2-3) and Yale (2-6)
These teams have already started to look like the weak links in the conference.
