Women’s D-I picks: March 15

Well, I did pretty well again in my second week of postseason picks, going 7-3 (.700). I can’t count the Sunday games, because I didn’t get around to posting picks in the new match-ups since I was at Denver-Alaska-Anchorage for an 11 a.m. game. Overall on the postseason, I am 24-10 (.705).

Here comes the NCAA tournament!

Saturday, March 16

North Dakota at Minnesota
This is the sixth meeting this season between these two teams. However, I don’t see the results changing, although it might be closer than it has in the past. Minnesota 3-2

Mercyhurst at Cornell
The Lakers haven’t really been tested since getting clobbered by Cornell back in January, and I think that will hurt them in this game. Cornell 4-2

Clarkson at Boston University
This comes down to goaltending: can Erica Howe hold off the Terriers offense enough for Clarkson’s less potent offense to succeed? My gut says not enough. Boston University 3-2

Harvard at Boston College
A rematch of a very thrilling Beanpot semifinal game won by the Eagles. I think the score and the winner will be the same. Boston College 2-1
