What’s next for Harvard?

Harvard’s victory over New Mexico on Thursday was its first ever in the history of the NCAA Tournament.

That earned the Crimson another shot in the tournament, with a berth in their first-ever Sweet 16 at stake.

Here’s what to look for from Harvard (20-9):

Next opponent: No. 6 seed Arizona (26-7)

Next game: Saturday, 6:10 p.m. at Salt Lake City


About Arizona: The Wildcats play in the powerhouse Pac-12 conference.

RPI comparison (used to compare teams based on factors like strength of schedule): Arizona’s is 15, Harvard’s is 92. The Crimson now have two wins vs. teams with RPIs in the top 100 this year, while the Wildcats had six wins against teams with top-50 RPIs in the regular season.


If Harvard wins: The Crimson would move on to Los Angeles next weekend, where they would face a still-undetermined opponent.
