Harvard has a winning basketball team, and the Ivy League school made it into the national top 25 this year for the first time. But instead of embracing the Crimson, the Cambridge campus seems remarkably torn, with some students expressing zero interest. The ambivalence may reflect a desire to stand proudly apart from the sports mania that has warped many campuses. But Harvard is doing a public service by showing there is a better way to top-tier athletic accomplishment.
