At UCONN 3/8

Post by baseline47 » Mon Mar 04, 2019 10:47 am

Five of us are driving down to Hartford to watch this last regular season game. What a season it has been! It's a meaningless game for UMass, but this is a fun team to watch.

Still has pairwise implications so it is far from meaningless...

You don't need cable or satellite to watch this game. If you get Hartford's channel 20 over the air, you're in luck.

This is a sneaky big game. If UConn wins and UMD sweeps St Cloud, UMass drops to 3 in the pairwise. I'd rather be the 2 overall and have an opportunity to play, say, a WCHA team that won their conference tournament then a 3 and have to play Western Michigan, who is currently 14.

I'm on the fence about going. I'm leaning towards streaming it and also the Northeastern/UNH game. Guess I gotta make up my mind soon if I'm gonna make it to Hartford for faceoff.

Time to crush them in the third.

Tied it early in 3 ; go behind again a little more than :30 seconds later.

Always feels bad for the leadership team to lose in its last regular season game.

UMass plays UNH - already ordained before the game.

Go UMass!!!!
