Princeton @ Harvard

Current Records: Princeton 17-8; Harvard 14-12

What to Know

After two games on the road, the Harvard Crimson are heading back home. The Crimson and the Princeton Tigers will face off in an Ivy battle at 2 p.m. ET Saturday at Lavietes Pavilion. Harvard should still be riding high after a victory, while Princeton will be looking to get back in the win column.

The Cornell Big Red typically have all the answers at home, but on Saturday Harvard proved too difficult a challenge. Harvard enjoyed a cozy 73-56 win over Cornell.

Meanwhile, the Tigers came up short against the Yale Bulldogs on Saturday, falling 93-83.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Crimson are expected to win a tight contest. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Harvard's win brought them up to 14-12 while Princeton's defeat pulled them down to 17-8. A couple stats to keep an eye on: Harvard is stumbling into the contest with the 44th most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 14 on average. The Tigers have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 21st worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.8 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
