WHRB Sports Blog Exclusive: Our Interview with Basketball Prospectus's Kevin Pelton

Harvard basketball just cruised to an easy victory over a Dartmouth team that is, to put it mildly, in disarray. They are now 1-0 in the Ivy League in what is essentially a 14-game tournament for the conference's lone NCAA bid. They have two more Ivy games before they head out to Ithaca for their huge match-up against Cornell.

In the meantime, we present an interview we recently recorded with Basketball Prospectus's Kevin Pelton. A spin-off of Baseball Prospectus, the site brings a great mix of insightful commentary and statistical analysis to both the professional and collegiate games. Although Kevin usually covers the NBA for the site, he is based in the Seattle area and so had an opportunity to watch the recent Harvard-Seattle game, which led to this article.

He very graciously agreed to talk to us about his thoughts on the Crimson. You can download the interview here.
