Harvard-Yale hoops playoff on MSG Plus

The Ivy League men’s basketball playoff between Harvard and Yale will be televised by MSG Plus at 4 p.m. Saturday. There will be a 3:30 p.m. pregame show and a post-game show to follow.
Yale lost to Dartmouth last week, failing in its bid to win the Ivy League title outright. The Ivy League is the only NCAA Division I conference without a postseason tournament to determine its champion so a playoff is necessary to break ties.
There have been eight previous Ivy League playoffs.
