As reported elsewhere (on Princeton thread), Bart Tovik is out with his 2018-19 projections:

#77 Harvard
#116 Yale
#135 Penn
#144 Princeton
#213 Columbia
#230 Brown
#237 Cornell
#260 Dartmouth

Compare to Tovik's 2017-2018 Preseason projections:
#83 Harvard
#87 Princeton
#98 Yale
#151 Penn
#191 Cornell
#224 Dartmouth
#276 Columbia
#302 Brown

Tovik's final 2018 rankings (vs KenPom):
#123 Penn (KP #125)
#139 Harvard (#141)
#199 Princeton (#190)
#202 Yale (#197)
#232 Columbia (#231)
#262 Brown (#267)
#263 Cornell (#265)
#297 Dartmouth (#299)

Clearly, Tovik's preseason expectations for the Ivy League were not met. Injuries and defections clearly played a role, but a league best #123 is a far cry from the projected 3 top 100 teams. Other than Harvard's projected ranking at #77, it appears Tovik has tempered his enthusiasm. Assuming Tovik knows something about the health of Bryce Aiken and Seth Towns.
