Ivy League conference recap

This is part 33 of a 33-part series in this blog, designed to give you all the information you need to know about each conference's tournament, and the postseason prospects of every single team in the conference.

Final standings:
Yale 11-3
Harvard 11-3
Princeton 9-5
Dartmouth 7-7
Columbia 5-9
Cornell 5-9
Brown 4-10
Penn 4-10

Conference tournament format:  Oh wait, they're rebels, the last holdouts without one.  But we do have a one-game playoff to settle the tie at the top.  The Palestra in Philadelphia will host it.

1t) Harvard vs. 1t) Yale

The stakes:
A likely 13 seed for the winner of the game.  The loser will be a true NIT bubble team.  Quickly, the highlights:
Yale:  @UConn, @Vermont, @Kent St
Harvard:  UMass, N'eastern, @Vermont

Both did reasonable work in the non-con.  The NIT chances of the loser will likely depend on how much the NIT bubble contracts.  It'll be close.

Deeper down, Princeton and Dartmouth are CIT-eligible.  Dartmouth is really a borderline resume, Princeton less so.
