The Harvard women are one win away from clinching the Ivy League's NCAA Tournament berth.The Crimson won at least a share of the Ivy League title on Friday with their 68-47 victory over Brown. The win improved Harvard to 18-9 overall and 11-2 in league play and marked coach Kathy Delaney-Smith's 400th career victory. The Crimson wrap up their regular season at Yale at 7 p.m. ET Saturday. If Harvard wins, it secures the NCAA bid. However, if on Saturday Harvard loses and Dartmouth (13-14, 10-3) beats Brown, the Crimson and Big Green would tie for the title and bid and force a playoff. Cornell (18-8, 10-3) also has a shot at forcing a playoff. A Big Red win over Princeton on Saturday, coupled with a Harvard loss to Yale, would give Cornell a share of its first Ivy League title.
