Women’s D-I picks: March 8

Well, I did pretty well in my first weekend of postseason prognosticating. I got most of the series right, correctly picking 11 series out of 15. In the games, I went 17-7 (.708). I’m picking everything again, so let’s see how I do.

Friday, March 8

Robert Morris at Mercyhurst
How many times can the Colonials make me look foolish for picking against them in this match-up? Something tells me the Lakers finally have their swagger back in this one. Mercyhurst 5-2

RIT vs. Syracuse
Overtime is likely. Will the break for the Orange work for them, or against? RIT didn’t look that great last weekend against Penn State. Syracuse 3-2

Ohio State at Minnesota
With or without Kessel, the Gophers are just too deep. Minnesota 4-1

North Dakota at Wisconsin
This one is a coin flip, so I’ll go with Wisconsin having a better goalie. Wisconsin 3-2

Saturday, March 9

Syracuse vs. Mercyhurst
The Orange will make it close, but the Lakers have their number. Mercyhurst 3-2

Wisconsin at Minnesota
The Badgers threaten the perfect season, but fall a little short. Minnesota 4-3

Harvard at Clarkson
Oh boy. I got this one wrong the last time, picking the Crimson. Can the Golden Knights make it three-for against the Crimson? Clarkson 3-1

St. Lawrence at Cornell
The Saints run of postseason heroics ends here. Cornell 4-2

Northeastern at Boston College
The Eagles have looked shaky of late, but I think they’ll have enough for a little Beanpot revenge. Boston College 3-2

Providence at Boston University
A close one ultimately falls the Terriers’ way.  Boston University 4-3

Sunday, March 10

Clarkson at Cornell
Can the Golden Knights get the title? If Erica Howe is on, anything is possible. Clarkson 3-2

Boston College at Boston University
These teams each won one, and tied a third, during the regular season. OT is definitely a possibility, especially since neither has looked like a powerhouse of late. Boston College 3-2
