Looks like the Hockey Team ran out of gas. They are young and improving, nice year.

They made it to the top 8 in the country and really battled tonight. Denver was the top seed in the entire tournament so they held their awn against them IMO! Team is young and talented so that is a great sign. It was fun watching the last 2 weekends!

Wish Men's BB would join the party. Kind of sad that year after year the NCAAs dance without us...
A good team has to have players capable of making plays...oh, wait - we're so there!

I was thrilled to see the hockey teams performance on Saturday and was hopeful for a win yesterday. Sadly, it wasn't to be but this is a team we are going to see in the Frozen Four soon enough!

As for basketball, how long has it been since we made the tournament? I know we beat Duke 16 years ago on the way to the sweet 16. Was that the last time?

We actually beat North Carolina that year (2001) in the 2nd round. Easily the biggest win in our history. Which kind of indicates the level of apathy for men's hoops.

To answer your question, though: 8 years ago, I think. Talor Battle was our best player, Ed DeChellis was still coach. We lost in the first round to Temple - doing this off memory, so fact checking required if anyone cares enough.

My wife's uncle is a huge North Carolina fan; you would think I would get that win right...

Big win for #13 MVB over #1 OSU. Tight 5 set match.

Another upset of OSU this year.
