Don't let the Ivy name lull you into a sense of comfort here. Harvard started the season just ranked inside of the Top 25, and their only real blemish was a one-point loss to Holy Cross. After losing that game (with an astonishing 24 turnovers), head coach Tommy Amaker benched all five starters in their next matchup, against Florida Atlantic, whom they would handily defeat, 71-49. Harvard is on a six-game winning streak and is currently ranked No. 29 by KenPom.

But remember, if Virginia holds them to under 50 tonight, those of us who made the pledge will be donating to the One Love Foundation! Read more about the Pack Line Pledge here.
