NCAA 2011 Bracket: Harvard's Body of Work Simply Not Good Enough for NCAA Berth
Harvard's Heartbreaking Loss to Princeton Keeps Them Out of the NCAA Tournament
For some reason, it's difficult to hope small conference bubble teams like Harvard get snubbed come selection Sunday.
Nevermind that their resumes are sorely lacking, which could be why no Ivy League has ever received an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Maybe the brainiacs at Harvard can explain exactly how a team with an overall strength of schedule of 120 managed to post a top-50 RPI.
Talk about a head-scratcher.
In the end, the lack of more than one solid nonconference win proved to be the Crimson's undoing.
Harvard defeated Colorado in impressive fashion, but failed to beat NCAA Tournament teams George Mason and Michigan early in the season.
As Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe opined, it's tough to argue against leaving Harvard out of the Big Dance.
Even if they really didn't deserve it.
