The regular season and conference tournaments are over, and the NCAA tournament is here. In just a few minutes, we'll begin to learn the matchups for next weekend's NCAA men's hockey tournament.
The NCAA selection show begins at noon on ESPNU, also streaming online at espn3.com and via mobile on the WatchESPN App.
During the show, the four NCAA regional fields will be revealed; the four regions are Worcester, Albany, St. Paul, and Cincinnati.
There are quite a few things we know for certain going in to the bracket reveal:
1) BC is in the field as a #2 seed.
2) SIX Hockey East teams and all four Beanpot teams are in the field
3) Quinnipiac will be the #1 overall seed for the tournament after winning the ECAC title last night
4) Because Notre Dame and BU are #3 seeds, the only two teams BC could possibly face in the first round are Harvard or Yale.
We will be posting bracket updates here to BCI and tweeting them out on @bcinterruption as well, so join us here as we learn what's going down next weekend.
