NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Tournament

The other Sweet Sixteen happens this weekend.  It is the NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Tournament.  This past Sunday, 16 teams were picked for this year’s tournament.  ESPN has a story about the tournament here.

The top seeds are:

  1. Boston College
  2. Michigan
  3. Union
  4. North Dakota

There are a lot of good teams in this tournament and anybody can win it.  Last year’s champion Minnesota-Duluth is in Boston College region this year as a number 3 seed.  They look to repeat again.

Details of the regions can be found at ESPN hereNHL.com has a preview story about this year’s tournament here. Coverage for the regions will be on ESPNU and ESPN3.

Winners of this weekend’s regions will advance to the Frozen Four to be held in Tampa April 5 and 7.  Championship game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

I will be watching this weekend to see North Dakota and Minnesota advance for their potential rematch on Sunday in the West region.
