NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Harvard became the first team in the nation to punch its ticket into the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship Friday night with a 70-58 victory at Yale live on the NBC Sports Network.

Harvard entered the contest with a two-game lead over Yale in the conference standings, and clinched the Ivy League Championship outright with the win. The Crimson, which is the first team to win four straight Ancient Eight titles since Penn did so from 1993-96, will now hear its name called on Selection Sunday for a third straight year and will be making its fifth consecutive trip to the postseason overall.
