Women’s D-I picks: March 14

Last weekend, I went a dismal 6-6 (.500) thanks to all the upsets. For the playoffs, I am 24-15 (.615). Let’s see if I can do any better in the NCAA tournament.

Saturday, March 15

Boston University at Minnesota
A rematch of last year’s championship game, but I don’t see any different outcome. Minnesota 4-2

Mercyhurst at Cornell
A rematch of last year’s quarterfinal, where the Lakers upset the Big Red in OT. I think Cornell will be extra on guard against that happening this time. Cornell 4-2

Boston College at Clarkson
I figure if there is one upset, this is the most likely spot for it, especially if the Golden Knights are without Erin Ambrose. Boston College 3-2

Harvard at Wisconsin
If both teams are affected by the power outages that have plagued them at times, this game could be a mutli-OT scoreless epic. I think home ice wins though. Wisconsin 3-2
