Harvard men's basketball coach Tommy Amaker will release the Crimson's official schedule in the coming days, but here is The Back Page's projected schedule.

The 2010-11 Harvard men’s basketball schedule has yet to be released, but the Crimson’s winter itinerary is beginning to take shape based on the officially released schedules of some of Harvard’s opponents. The Crimson won’t be making a west-coast swing this season, but the non-conference schedule will take the squad to Georgia, Michigan, and Washington D.C.

Closer to home, the Ivy League schedulers sure know how to make things exciting, pitting Harvard against Princeton on the final Saturday of conference play. The Crimson and the Tigers are projected by most media outlets to finish atop the Ancient Eight standings, so this contest could hold postseason implications. Below is The Back Page’s schedule projection for the upcoming season:

Sat, Nov. 13 at George Mason

Sat, Nov. 20 at Mercer

Wed, Nov. 24 at Bryant

Sun, Nov. 28 vs. Colorado

Tue, Dec. 28 vs. MIT

Other projected non-conference contests: Home games against Holy Cross, Boston University, Seattle, Colorado, and Fordham. Road games at George Washington, UConn, Michigan, and Boston College.

League play should boil down to:

Sat, Jan 8 at Dartmouth

Sat, Jan 22 vs. Dartmouth

Fri, Jan 28 vs. Columbia

Sat, Jan 29 vs. Cornell

Fri, Feb 04 at Princeton

Sat, Feb 05 at Penn

Fri, Feb 11 vs. Yale

Sat, Feb 12 vs. Brown

Fri, Feb 18 at Cornell

Sat, Feb 19 at Columbia

Fri, Feb 25 at Brown

Sat, Feb 26 at Yale

Fri, Mar 04 vs. Penn
