VIDEO: Princeton Beats Harvard On Douglas Davis' Buzzer-Beater, Earns Ivy League's NCAA Tournament Berth

Of course, in the mayhem that is the glut of conference tournaments leading into the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the one league that doesn't stage a tournament stole the show. Princeton's buzzer-beater victory over Harvard is just the latest reminder that March is full of truly mad college basketball.

That Douglas Davis shot is about the best moment of Championship Week(s) so far, and it's going to be hard to top it with only a handful of tournament finals left to go. It's also the shot that gives Princeton its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2004 and the one that denies Harvard its first NCAA Tournament trip since 1946.

Predictably, smart Harvard fans are reacting to this loss in some anger, while also (rightly) noting that this was the sort of game that makes the fabled "eye test" for NCAA Tournament hopefuls. But this is just what happens in March: in two-tenths of a second, a season finds its fate.
