>The question now seems to be, not if the RedHawks will be in, but where they will play. Finishing 13 in the PWI earns the RedHawks a number four seed. CHN’s final projected bracket is as follows:
(1) Denver vs. (4) Miami
(2) Northeastern vs. (3) Princeton
Obviously, a Miami/Denver matchup would be several things…emotional, due to George Gwozdecky’s MU connection, tough, given that the Pioneers are a national powerhouse, not to mention former national champions and one could even describe the matchup this way: winnable. While Miami had a tough second half of the regular reason, we’ve seen the Jeckel and Hyde personality that this team has. Remember the sweeps of Michigan and Notre Dame? Denver is vulnerable. Beaten by University of Minnesota-Duluth in the WCHA title game, the Pioneers could be doubting their game heading into the Frozen Four…lest we forget, they *are* a number one seed.
Remember, today is Selection Sunday! Tune in at 11:30 AM on ESPN2 to find out where the RedHawks land. I’ll be updating the blog here, as the show progresses.
