You can watch the Division II tournament selection shows, both men's and women's, live online tonight starting at 10 PM. Just go to this NCAA web page and click on the link you want. Not that predictions mean anything, but I expect the Gannon women will host the Atlantic Regional and this is what I think the men's bracket will look like:
#1 West Liberty vs. #8 Bowie State
#2 Winston Salem vs. #7 East Stroudsburg
#3 IUP vs. #6 Slippery Rock
#4 Fairmont State vs. #5 Livingstone
I think Alderson-Broaddus might sneak into the #7 slot ahead of East Stroudsburg who hasn't beaten a team with a winning record since March 6 (vs. 14-12 Cheyney). The Warriors are 2-4 in their last 6 games with their only Ws at home vs. 8-19 Bloom and 10-18 Mansfield.
When the men's and women's brackets are official, I'll post them here. Go Knights!
Updated 3/10/13 10:16 PM: The Hammermill will be rocking this
weekend -- the Gannon women will host the Atlantic Region NCAA
tournament. Here are the brackets:
#8 Fairmont State (23-9) at #1 Gannon (28-4)
#5 Bloomsburg (24-5) vs. #4 IUP (22-8)
#3 Shaw (25-4) vs. #6 Glenville State (26-3)
#2 Edinboro (22-6) vs. #7 California (20-8)
Updated 3/10/13 10:40 PM: Gannon's season is officially over.
Despite a 22-7 record, the Knights were not selected for the NCAA
tournament this season. Kind of makes you extra ill to see Franklin
Pierce be the #1 seed in the East Region at 21-8 and the 18-11 Arkansas
Tech Wonderboys get at at-large bid in the Central Region. Here is the
bracket for the Atlantic Regional which will be held at West Liberty:
#8 Bowie State (16-13) at #1 West Liberty (30-1)
#5 Livingstone (22-6) vs. #4 Fairmont State (22-8)
#3 IUP (24-5) vs. #6 East Stroudsburg (22-6)
#2 Winston-Salem State (21-6) vs. #7 Slippery Rock (22-8)
