Harvard Men’s Basketball Team Makes It Into AP Top 25 Poll for First Time

By Curtis Eichelberger

The Harvard University men’s basketball team is No. 25 in this week’s Associated Press poll and No. 24 in the coaches’ poll, the first time in the program’s 101-year history it’s been ranked among the best in the country.

The Crimson, 8-0, are the only unbeaten team in the Ivy League with early season victories over Florida State (46-41), which was in the Top 25 at the time, and Holy Cross (73-64). Harvard, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, plays the University of Connecticut, ranked No. 9 in both polls, in Storrs, Connecticut, on Dec. 8.

The University of Kentucky is ranked No. 1 in both polls this week. The unbeaten Wildcats defeated the University of North Carolina 73-72 on Dec. 3.

Harvard is one of 15 undefeated teams in the country and has a 19-game home-court win streak, tied with North Carolina for seventh-longest in the nation, the school said in a press release. Duke University and Kentucky share the nation’s longest home victory run at 39. Harvard’s next home game is Dec. 22 against Florida Atlantic.
