NCAA Tournament Set: Denver vs Boston U in Round One

The NCAA Tournament bracket was announced this morning and to no one’s surprise, Denver will be traveling back to the Minneapolis-St. Paul region next weekend for first and potentially second round action.

Denver will take on the Boston University Terriers in the first round at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. It is a rematch of the Halloween game in which the Pioneers lost to the Terriers in overtime at Agganis Arena in Boston.

If Denver gets by BU, the Pioneers would take on the winner of St. Cloud State vs Ferris State in the regional final with a Frozen Four berth on the line. In all likelihood, St. Cloud will get past Ferris State and Denver would play the Huskies for the second time in as many weeks.

“Two of our team planes will be in the air when the selection show airs,” Montgomery explained. “So when we land, we’ll see who we’re playing and start downloading some games.”
