NCAA Tournament Projections

Once again, Matt Latham sorts out the NCAA tournament field.

Here's what it looks like this week:

East Regional (Rochester, NY. Host: ECACHL)
March 23rd & March 24th

#1 St. Cloud State vs. #4 Niagara
#2 Clarkson vs. #3 Vermont

Midwest Regional (Grand Rapids, MI. Host: Western Michigan)
March 23rd & 24th

#1 Minnesota vs. #4 St. Lawerence
#2 Michigan State vs. #3 North Dakota

Northeast Regional (Manchester, NH. Host: New Hampshire)
March 24th & 25th

#1 New Hampshire vs. #4 Sacred Heart
#2 Maine vs. #3 Michigan

West Regional (Denver, CO. Host: Denver U)
March 24th & 25th

#1 Notre Dame vs. #4 Boston College
#2 Denver U vs. #3 Miami U

Last 2 In: Miami, Boston College
First 2 Out: Colorado College, Michigan Tech

Those would be appear to be very favorable brackets for the WCHA, and especially St. Cloud, who is in a regional with with a CHA team, and two teams they've already beaten fairly easily this year. It would also appear to be pretty tough brackets for the CCHA.

This current bracketology has SCSU having the easiest path to the Frozen Four.

Which ever WCHA teams go east have the easiest path. How would you like to be a #2 and draw UND?
