I think you're thinking of 2011... The 2012 team was deep and talented and did win the league. The 2014 team was the best of this era. I suspect 2020 will be as good or better than those. That being said, I don't doubt another Ivy could come along as well.

Another way to put this -- just because Amaker preferred pairing Chambers/Curry and Chambers/Aiken when he had the option doesn't mean that he has to have 2 PGs to succeed. Obviously Chambers will be missed, but playing a bigger lineup will have it's advantages as well (assuming that is how it shakes out).

In theory, Amaker's motion offense doesn't require a PG to move the ball. In practice, in the games I saw, when Chambers was off the floor the offense all too often ended up in that desperation PNR at the end of the shot clock. That's supposed to be the bailout option, not the primary action. There were a lot of young guys playing, so perhaps the ball movement will improve and this will become a non-issue.

USA Today Coaches Poll gives Harvard 2 votes (45th rank). No other Ivy votes

Note that James Jones has a vote as does St. Mary's coach Randy Bennett. St. Mary's vs Harvard headlines first round of upcoming Wooden Legacy Tournament.

I stand corrected. I was thinking of Doug Davis' 2011 playoff team. Years go by faster at my age🙁
