It seems Harvard no longer needs to rely on the above chant familiar to fans of any school with high SAT scores and low win totals. No. 25 Harvard travels to play No. 9 Connecticut tonight (ESPN2, 7 p.m. ET) as a ranked team, the first time that has been the case for the Ivy League school. Crimson coach Tommy Amaker played for a program that mixes academics with wins at Duke, but is his team for real?

Is Harvard the new Butler?

Princeton has been a factor in March many times. Cornell made it to the Sweet 16 recently. Is Harvard capable of making a run?


Do you know your Crimson?

Keith Wright (above) leads Harvard in scoring at 11.4 points per game, and Kyle Casey (10.9 ppg) and Laurent Rivard (10.1 ppg) are close behind. Brandyn Curry leads in assists and steals.


The best limb on Coach K's tree?

Tommy Amaker met with mixed results at Seton Hall and Michigan, but he's built Harvard into a winner since arriving in Cambridge.
