Second place after losing a game?! Shows you how inconsistent polling trends are among voters.

Nobody said the S16 was an exact science!

You do need to consider how the teams in front of Princeton have flamed out recently, especially Villanova. I'd guess winning at Penn and getting a share of the Ivy crown was rewarded with a boost by those who voted this week.

Would you guess that the winner of tomorrow's game will get the same seed (say 13) because it makes the Tournament Committee's job easier? Or is Harvard playing for a higher seed by virtue of having an RPI of 34 vs 49 for the Tigers?

I haven't looked at the S-curve too much but based on what I've seen I'd say 12 for Harvard and 13 for Princeton with the always possible one line slide up/down to make the bracket work.

Would be nice for the Tigers if Bucknell won today and Tulsa kept going in the CUSA tournament.

There's a chance the Crimson could also get an at-large bid. Their blind profile stands up!

Lunardi is discounting the possibility of a Harvard at-large, but you never know.

In the event Harvard did get an at-large, seems likely they would go to Dayton for the play-in as one of the Last Four In.

I think Lunardi is all hat and no cattle.

He's ranked 23rd of the so-called "bracketologists" here:
