One correction to Keith Wright: Princeton was the more popular pre-season choice last season but, at the beginning of Ivy conference play, I think that most observers would have given the nod to Harvard. I believe that, when the dust cleared last March, most Ivy fans were quite surprised that it was the Tigers going on to the tournament.
