The NCAA Division I Team Tournament features 64 teams, including 28 conference champions who receive automatic selection.
The first two rounds are played at 16 sites around the country, with each composed of one No. 1-16, No. 17-32, No. 33-48 and No. 49-64 seed. The winners at each site will advance to the Final 16 at the University of Georgia in Athens on May 22-25.
The Crimson, making its 15th appearance in the national tournament overall, has reached the round of 16 in each of the last three seasons.
Before making its reservations for Georgia, however, the Crimson will likely receive stiff challenges from both Notre Dame and Baylor--assuming the Bears dispose of Indiana State in the first round.
Although Harvard is not the favorite to advance from the bracket, the Crimson has made noise in the tournament before and will look to do so again in 1999.
