LetsGoDU Quick Takes

  • Hockey watch for DU – Ohio State hockey at The Pioneer Bar, 2401 South University. Game time: Friday, 2:00 pm MT. The Pioneers have a chance to avenge last season’s NCAA playoff loss to the Buckeyes.

  • Former Pioneers Peter Mannino is the new interim head coach at Miami as they conduct their national coaching search.

  • While DU men’s lacrosse is trying to gain their footing, DU women’s lacrosse (#15, 8-2) defeated Colorado in Boulder. That makes it two wins for Denver over the last two years against the Buffs to cement DU women’s lacrosse as the best collegiate Lax program in Colorado.
  • In basketball, DU senior red-shirt Jake Krafka has announced that he is going to look to transfer from the University of Denver. Jake was a tough interior player and will be missed. SDSU head coach, T. J. Otzelberger, is headed to UNLV. Smart move after the graduation of Mike Daum.
  • And, according to KELO, published March 7th,  Augustana has not been formally discussed by Summit League members. KELO quotes Summit League commissioner Tom Douple, “We have not discussed, you know, membership at our Joint Council or President’s Council either this fall. It’s not on our agenda either for the President’s Council meeting in March.” That might indicate some resistance to Augustana’s membership in the Summit League until there is more league support to extend an invitation to the Vikings.
