Women’s D-I picks: March 13

There are only seven games left in this long season that started in September. Seven more games to pick. It’d be nice to go 7-for-7; let’s see what we can do this weekend.

Last weekend, I went a dreadful 4-7 (.363). So far this postseason, I am 26-14 (.650).

Saturday, March 14

Clarkson at Boston College
BC showed a little vulnerability last weekend, but the Eagles haven’t lost at home this year, and I don’t see it happening this weekend. Boston College 3-1

Quinnipiac at Harvard
Another 2-1 victor for the Crimson? Sure, why not, but OT may be required. Harvard 2-1

Boston University at Wisconsin
Home ice vs. Marie-Philip Poulin. I’m betting on the suddenly hot latter. Boston University 3-2

RIT at Minnesota
The Tigers’ senior class is 15-1 in the postseason over their careers. This game is a second loss. Minnesota 4-1

  1. if there’s anyone that knows how to play shut-down hockey, it’s Mike Schafer and Cornell

    Interesting that you wrote this when in the next section you rightly note that Cornell has had trouble playing with third period leads all year.

  3. Holy blowout Batman.. with all due respect – Union looked unbeatable against Colgate.. Now #4 in the PW ranking..  they need another win tomorrow to get a #1 seed. 

    The harvard/cornell game just started – along those lines – It would probably be better if Cornell advances, then if Union beats them the win will have the necessary strength to drive them higher up in the PW ranking to get a #1 seed… 

    If Harvard wins they’ll likely end up a 2 (if they win) or 3 (if they lose) – which means the outcome technically doesn’t matter (other than bragging rights); they will end up in a 2/3 game.  I’d say the real difference is a 1 vs 4…

  5. Union is destined for success. Cornell is flat this weekend after spanking Dartmouth all over the ice.  They might get an at-large bid, but they are young and have a steep hill to climb.  GO RED

    • I’m a Union Fan, but if i were a Big Red Fan: 

      #1-You have to hope for Union to win tomorrow (since they get in anyway) and hope for Harvard to lose (and not take up another spot in the tourney).

      #2-Take care of business against Colgate

      #3-Get some luck with the other teams in the 9-16 slots.

    • It was worth a Tweet, which I did last night. It’s now happened 3 times in 33 series. Canisius has now done it twice,

      Other useless trivia: All but Canisius has won a conference championship of some kind. Mercyhurst won the MAAC in 2001 and 2003 and AHA in 2005. Niagara won the CHA in 2000 (no autobid but got an at-large bid), 2004 and 2008. UConn won the MAAC in 2000 but the league didn’t have an autobid yet. So UConn and Canisius have never been to the NCAA tournament.

  7. Even with Canisius and Niagara I still think the stands will seem empty, as it is they are the 4pm game on Friday. Bet is each school will bring a bus maybe 2. Each school is more basketball, Niagara does a decent job a filling their arena, despite a lack of student interest (They go to the basketball games) with locals and a decent youth hockey imprint, but hardly anyone will travel, these are causal fans at best…

    • As said by the rit president rit has them right where they want them just like the 1980 mens gold medal game In the olympics
