There is one more weekend of Ivy League regular season men’s lacrosse, and here is what we know and don’t know:

The known? Cornell will be the host school of the tournament on May 3 and 5 as the outright Ivy League champion and will be the No. 1 seed. Princeton and Yale are also in the tournament field. Brown and Dartmouth have been eliminated.

The unknown? The fourth team in the field will be either Penn or Harvard. The remaining seeds and matchups won’t be set until next week.

 

Next weekend

Princeton vs. Cornell, Yale at Harvard, Brown at Dartmouth

 

Current Standings

Cornell 5-0

Yale 3-2

Princeton 3-2

Penn 3-3

Harvard 2-3           

Dartmouth 1-4

Brown 1-4


The game between Brown and Dartmouth will not impact the Ivy tournament seedings, so there are four possible outcomes with the other two games. Also, a Harvard win over Yale would have the same seedings regardless of who won Cornell-Princeton.

Here are the results of each of the four:

Scenario No. 1

Princeton win over Cornell

Harvard win over Yale

With these results, Cornell would No. 1, Princeton would be No. 2, Harvard would No. 3 and Yale would No. 4.

Why? Because there would be a three-way tie for third, and Harvard would be the third seed by being 2-0 against the other two. Yale would be 1-1, and Penn would be 0-2, making Yale the fourth seed.

Scenario No. 2

Princeton win over Cornell

Yale win over Harvard

With these results, Cornell would be No. 1, Princeton would be No. 2, Yale would be No. 3, Penn would be No. 4.

Why? Princeton and Yale would be 4-2, but Princeton defeated Yale (the only significance would be who wore their home uniforms). Penn would be 3-3. Harvard would be 2-4.

Scenario No. 3

Cornell win over Princeton

Harvard win over Yale

With these results, Cornell would be No. 1, Princeton would be No. 2, Harvard would be No. 3, Yale would be No. 4.

Why? Because there would be a four-way tie among Princeton, Penn, Yale and Harvard. Princeton is 2-1 against the other three. Penn is 1-2 against the other three. Harvard would be 2-1, and Yale would be 1-2 (assuming the Harvard win). Yale’s win over Penn would make the Bulldogs the four seed. Princeton’s win over Harvard would make the Tigers the two seed.

Scenario No. 4

Cornell win over Princeton

Yale win over Harvard

With these results, Cornell would be No. 1, Yale would be No. 2, Penn would be No. 3, Princeton would be No. 4.

Why? Because Yale would be 4-2. Princeton and Penn would be 3-3. Harvard would be 2-4. Penn’s win over Princeton would break the tie for the third seed.
