The NCAA tournament pairings are in, and it’s a surprise.
Dartmouth at No. 1 Harvard
Wisconsin at No. 4 Minnesota
St. Lawrence at No. 3 New Hampshire
Mercyhurst at No. 2 Minnesota-Duluth
All games will be Saturday.
This is a departure from past precedent, as the committee had previously showed a preference in avoiding intraconference matchups. Note that this pairing only requires one flight.
