The University of Denver Men’s soccer team won again last night to keep their national title hopes alive. They beat Washington 2-1 to clinch another game next weekend against the winner of the Clemson vs. Albany Round of 16 match in South Carolina. This victory and advancement in the NCAA tournament are not only huge for this year’s squad but for the program as a whole.

Head coach Jamie Franks does not take this significance lightly and he wants to build this program into a perennial soccer powerhouse. Watch him talk to the media after beating Washington last night:

  1. 203 teams in NCAA Soccer: DU now in final 8 in 2016 from 48 team tourney
    60 teams in NCAA hockey in 2016: DU made it to final 4 of the 16 team tourney

    Which is the tougher achievement?

  3. Looking forward to the Clemson game. DU really proved they belonged with the 2 NCAA wins. Beating Clemson at home will be an even tougher task, but I bet they can do it. DU has arguably been more impressive than Clemson in the tourney so far. I also just saw that #1 seed Maryland has been bounced. So let’s get to the final four in Houston and anything can happen there.
