MSU hockey team seems set for NCAAs

MANKATO — Minnesota State will host an NCAA hockey tournament selection show viewing party at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Buffalo Wild Wings’ downtown location.

Based on the Pairwise Rankings following Saturday's conference playoff games, the Mavericks appeared to be locked in to make the Division I men’s tournament for the second time in program history and the first time since 2003.

The selection show, which will air at 8 p.m. on ESPN U, will give next week’s regional matchups. Minnesota State could play in Grand Rapids, Mich. (Friday-Saturday); Toledo, Ohio (Saturday-Sunday); Manchester, N.H. (Friday-Saturday) or Providence, R.I. (Saturday-Sunday).

The Mavericks are 24-13-3 and finished tied for fourth in the WCHA. They are coming off a 7-2 loss to Wisconsin in the opening game of the WCHA Final Five in St. Paul.
