New Haven, CT, United States (4E Sports) – Harvard defeated Yale, 70-58, Friday to win the Ivy League championship and become the first to qualify for the 2014 NCAA men’s basketball Tournament.

The Ivy League does not hold a league tournament and the regular-season champion earns the automatic bid into the Big Dance.

Siyani Chambers scored 17 points and Steve Moundou-Missi added 16 for the win at John J. Lee Amphitheater.

Chambers, a sophomore point guard, either leads or is second on the team points, assists, steals, 3-point percentage and

minutes. Wesley Saunders, Kyle Casey and Mondui-Missi are all also capable of carrying the team on a given night.

Coach Tommy Amaker’s squad is 12-1 in league play with one game remaining.

This is the third straight Ivy League title for Harvard (25-4, 12-1), but just the fourth in program history.

The 68 teams to make the cut will be announced during the Selection Sunday show March 16.
