Minnesota State is in

It took a couple of days after its loss in the Final Five, but scores around the country finally fell right for Minnesota State, and it appears the Mavericks are in the NCAA Division I tournament for the first time since 2003 and just the second time in program history.

It appears the Mavericks will be a No. 3 seed at one of the four regionals, but which one? Grand Rapids? Toledo? Providence? Manchester?

Minnesota State will host an NCAA tournament selection show viewing party for fans at 7:30 p.m. Sunday night at Buffalo Wild Wings' downtown Mankato location. The show will air at 8 p.m. on ESPN U.

Meanwhile, Wisconsin punched its ticket to the tourney by defeating Colorado College in the WCHA Final Five Broadmoor Trophy championship game Saturday night.

Well deserved Mavs! A great season that continues to exceed all expectations. Hopefully this will be the start of many more NCAA appearances.

According to the various hockey pundits, they will open play with BC, New Hampshire, or Miami U. Bring 'em on!
