Bart has Harvard at No. 23 now as well. It’s not crazy, and Harvard may indeed play like a No. 23 team for stretches next season.

From a full-season perspective, though, there are enough watchouts to give me pause. All the key players would need to be healthy for a full season, which Harvard has yet to accomplish since this group was freshmen. They’d need to be healthy for long enough before the season to hit the ground running together. Tommy would need to avoid tinkering with lineups and not playing his best lineups to “win” games early on. And Harvard still needs to find a rotation of bigs behind Lewis that it can feel confident in consistently.

At the same time, this team is far more talented than the other Harvard teams that spent time in the Top 25, so it’s not crazy. But, man, this has been such a snakebit class that it’s hard to put a ton of stock in what seems like a pretty “best case” projection.
