Harvard became the first team to book their place in the 2014 NCAA tournament following a 70-58 victory over arch-rival Yale.

The Crimson moved onto a 25-4 record as they came away from the John J. Lee Amphitheater with a big win to clinch the Ivy League title.

Siyani Chambers was Harvard's top scorer on the night with 17 points but Steve Moundou-Missy and Brandyn Curry both hit double figures to help guide them to the title.

An incredible display by Yale's Justin Sears who scored 28 points on the night with 13 rebounds and one assist wasn't enough to help his team take the first step of an unlikely title charge.

Harvard knew entering the game, victory would mean glory and after scoring the first nine points in the game and keeping Yale from scoring for four minutes, they never lost the lead and led by 17 at one point in the second half.

The Crimson fans ending the victory by chanting "this is our house" in the dying few seconds before erupting in jubilation of their teams triumph.
