No question that Yale will be much stronger next year, especially if Makai Mason returns to form. Harvard will be better as well with those talented Freshmen become Sophomores. Penn with the development of the freshman B's will be tough and a contender for the Ivy crown.
Princeton is losing Cook and Weisz, but Gladson is a rising center and there are many good players on the bench along with Bell and Stephens.

The league will be extremely competitive and it is highly doubtful that any Ivy team will go through the year undefeated in league play. Should be fun.

Looks like a fun league next year for everyone not named Columbia, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell.

Not saying much, true.

But the guys who are graduating were not impact players.

Green,
Are you guys getting any decent freshmen?? You need some good freshman so that Boudreaux won't continue to be quintuple teamed all of the time.

Short version is that we have a couple of guys coming in who had several mid-to-low major offers.

No one is really screaming "First Team All Ivy." But hopefully they can help us win games.

I haven't seen anything about the entering class. Have you? If it's a good one, Dartmouth could be much better next year. The new coach and the players did a fine job. They were a real team by year's end. Their Ivy record did not reflect their substantial improvement.

Boudreaux was as good as any player in the Ivies this year. He carried the team. Assuming normal improvement in a couple of the freshmen who played a lot this year, plus a good recruiting class, Dartmouth could be very tough in '17-18.

This site reviews all of the recruits for all of the Ivy Teams. Here is Dartmouth

If you look at the ratings given to players on that site, you will see, first, that Dartmouth's recruit ratings on paper seem largely comparable (mostly 2 stars) to those of other schools (such as Yale (Mason, Oni) and Princeton (Weisz, Cook, Stephens); maybe not quite as much for Harvard, and second, that their recruit star ratings have been relatively constant for several years.

Yet the disparity of results on the court has been severe. Clearly there's a lot more to go by than just counting the number of stars, at least when you are looking at "2 star" recruits.

HYPP keep pushing the performance ceiling, and Columbia and Cornell don't seem far behind. Even if Dartmouth is "better" than last year, if everyone else is "more better," it's losing ground.

Perhaps the extra wins will come against our nonconference opponents.

They definitely got better by end of year. But they were listed as the "underachiever of the year" in the Ivies. This was a major step back in a year where we were supposed to improve considerably. No reason that Penn should have surpassed us this year. I don't blame the new coach because it takes time to adjust. But at the end of the day, we fell back to the depths of D1 due to shooting ourselves in the foot.
