Interesting stuff - The first NCAA mock selection bracket has both Cornell and Harvard in the field of 64. Richmond is also in as an 11 seed.

Looks like time for the Get-a-Grip Patrol. No way both Cornell and hahvahd make the tourney unless they jointly sweep the league, which based on history is wildly unlikely -- even with decades of P/P domination, it's happened only three times. Even then, this bracket shows CORNELL (12) being one of the last at-larges in, thus H (11) as the league champ, leading to a suspicion Amaker's PR guy is firmly in charge.

I look forward to the Crimson/Princeton rerematch in the NIT.

Both Cornell and Harvard have to play Penn twice. And Dartmouth (Cornell twice more). With the 25%-50%-25% RPI formula, this will be a mortal wound to their joint Top 50 status.

Offsetting that, they do play each other twice and that will improve their SOS. But if the teams split, each team adds a loss to their W-L. Playing each other (and Princeton) won't help as much as facing Penn twice (and Dartmouth) will hurt.

Lunardi does not have them both going in and I expect he is right.

You might want to read this:

Adds some interesting insights to the bracket coming out of the NCAA Convention. There are a couple rule changes that could potentially help "mid major" profiles.


Lunardi does have Cornell in his "First Four Out" (with Harvard winning the league because they have a better current conference record) so the differences between his bracket and the bracket I linked too are not that great.

Seems to me that Cornell being "First Four Out" represents a best-case scenario if the season ended today. Either H or C could strengthen their case for a stronger seed over the rest of the season. But almost surely not both.
