Deep field of contenders making life hard for power-conference teams
The Crimson likely won't be challenged for the Ivy League crown. That will make them the first team to clinch a bid for the tournament, but they won't be heavily tested before the Big Dance. Harvard has played just three teams in the RPI top 100, beating UW-Green Bay and losing to Colorado and Connecticut. It will be a hard team to peg come March, but it should do enough to be seeded somewhere in the 10-11 range.
