Wolverines Make the Big Dance...On Ice


Well, it's about damn time. The University of Michigan defeated the Michigan State Spartans Sunday 3-2 to capture the CCHA Tournament Championship. This Championship Trophy will sit next to the CCHA Regular Season Championship trophy, and earned Michigan an automatic bid to 2002 NCAA Tournament. As luck would have it, the NCAA Tournament West Regional is being held at Yost Ice Arena, and the Wolverines have earned a #4 seed in that region.

The schedule is as follows:

Friday, March 22

Game 1 -- #3 seed Michigan State vs. #6 seed Colorado College -- 4:30 p.m.

Game 2 -- #4 seed Michigan vs. #5 seed St. Cloud State -- 8 p.m.

Saturday, March 23

Game 3 -- #2 seed Minnesota vs. Game 1 winner -- 4 p.m.

Game 4 -- #1 seed Denver vs. Game 2 winner -- 7:30 p.m.
