Ivy Madness includes a unique tournament format, placing the top four teams of both the men's and women's regular season standings, for six games over the course of two days.

Harvard women's basketball has opened its season with a 4-4 record, led by junior guard Katie Benzan with 14.3 points per game. The Crimson has advanced to the Ivy League Tournament each year since its inception, finishing in the top-three of the Ancient Eight for the past 12 years. 

The men's team is also off to a 4-4 start, including victories over MIT, Massachusetts, Holy Cross and Saint Mary's. Harvard has appeared in both of the first two Ivy League tournaments, and advanced to the final as the top overall seed in 2018.

The two-day event consistently features some of the best competition in the nation. Last year, Ivy League women's basketball was ranked the ninth-best conference according to the NCAA RPI, while Ivy League men's and women's basketball have combined for six NCAA Tournament wins in the last nine seasons. Both tournament brackets were decided on the final weekend of the regular season last year.
