The Storyline
The Harvard women's lacrosse team will begin play in the 2012 Ivy League Tournament as the fourth seed when it takes on the top-seeded host Penn Quakers Friday, May 4 at 8 p.m. in Philadelphia, Pa. This marks Harvard's second straight appearance in the tournament after reaching the championship game in 2011.

Live video and live stats will be available for all tournament games through IvyLeagueSports.com.

What's at Stake
Penn won the Ivy League regular season title with a 6-1 conference mark and the right to call itself Ivy League champion, but there is still much to gain this weekend as the Ivy League Tournament champion will receive the Ancient Eight's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Princeton earned the bid last year when it defeated Harvard in the championship game, 12-10, while Penn won the inaugural Ivy League Tournament with a 9-8 victory over Dartmouth in 2010.
