Recapping the news from a historic week in Ivy League basketball:
What Happened Last Week: Yale (NCAA), Princeton (NIT) and Columbia (CIT) learned who and when they will play next. Penn’s women topped Princeton for the outright championship. The Ivy League announced its postseason awards, and the 14-Game Tournament is no more.
