Former Michigan basketball coach Tommy Amaker leads Harvard into top 25 for first time
Former Michigan basketball coach Tommy Amaker has made history at Harvard.
Harvard is the first Ivy League squad to receive a national ranking since Cornell sat at No. 22 in the coaches poll in 2010.
The Crimson are 8-0 for the first time since 1984-85, according to a school release, and have scored wins over both Utah and Florida State already this season.
Amaker spent six seasons at Michigan (2001-07), amassing a 108-84 record. Amaker never advanced to the NCAA Tournament during his tenure on the Wolverine bench, and was fired following a 22-13 record in 2006-07.
