PRINCETON, N.J. -- Ivy League men's basketball continues on the NBC Sports Network this Saturday with a matchup of the top two preseason picks to win the conference title as Harvard hosts Penn at Lavietes Pavilion in Cambridge, Mass. Tipoff is set for 9 p.m.
The Penn-Harvard series has proven to be a see-saw battle as of late. The teams have split the season series each of the past two years. Prior to that, Harvard held the upper hand, winning eight of 11 including six straight from 2009-12. The Quakers hold the all-time advantage with a 129-35 record against the Crimson.
Dave Popkin (play-by-play) and Dalen Cuff (analyst) are set to be on the call for this game.
