Three Beanpot Teams In The Top 8 Entering Monday


As of last night's slate of games, three Beanpot teams will enter the prestigious tournament in the top 8 in the PairWise rankings. In addition to crowning the kings of Boston, this tournament will have massive implications on the NCAA field.

In the early game, #5 Harvard, the tournament's highest-ranked team, will take on the Boston College Eagles, who are up to #7 after this weekend. It's unfortunate that this heavyweight fight will happen at 5 PM tomorrow, likely in front of a small crowd.

In the nightcap, BU will face Northeastern, with the Terriers holding down the #8 spot in the Pairwise. NU is the only team outside the top 10, but they come in red hot - they're 8-1-2 in their last 11 games.

It's set to be one of the most wide open Beanpot tournaments in recent memory, and it all starts tomorrow.
