With one game to go in the regular season, Robert Morris and Syracuse have both already earned a bye week for the tournament quarterfinals. The only thing left to be decided for the regular season is which of the two earns the regular season CHA title, or if they share it.

The CHA tournament is at the HARBORCENTER in Buffalo, NY next weekend.

-------------------------------------------------

March 2 (Thursday) Quarterfinals - #3 Mercyhurst vs #6 Lindenwood at 4:00 PM, and #4 Penn State vs #5 RIT at approximately 7:30 PM.

March 3 (Friday) Semifinals - #1 seed (probably Robert Morris) vs lowest remaining seed at 4:00 PM, and the #2 seed (probably Syracuse) vs highest remaining seed at approximately 7:30 PM.

March 4 (Saturday) CHA Tournament Final at 4:00 PM. Barring any upsets, it will be Robert Morris vs Syracuse for the CHA title and a spot in the NCAA tournament.

Robert Morris owns the head-to-head tiebreaker, so the Colonials are the #1 seed.

I definitely missed when they made the entire tournament single elimination.

Also, shoveit, shelfit.

LOL, good alliteration. Very cute. I like it. Alas, the truth hurts.

In the first of today's two quarterfinal games, after two periods it's Lindenwood ahead of Mercyhurst 3-2. Yes, Lindenwood. Ahead of Mercyhurst.

Lindenwood holds on to win 3-2 and knock Mercyhurst out of the CHA tournament in the first quarterfinal matchup of today. Next up is Penn State facing RIT at around 7:30.

Robert Morris is quietly chuckling under its breath.

Maybe Lindenwood is the one chuckling as they beat RMU once this year!

Maybe, but probably about taking out MercyHurst. Good thing UMD didn't hire Sisti. ;)

Because then they wouldn't have hired Moana Cromwell?
She had that Bulldog team ready to go this year. And she won WCHA coach of the year :D

No surprise to anyone, Robert Morris will face Syracuse tomorrow at 4:00 for the CHA championship and a trip to the NCAA tournament.

It's interesting that KRACH has Robert Morris ranked considerably higher than Syracuse, but the Lock ratings actually have Syracuse higher:

Hopefully, the two teams are both on top of their game today.

Well, Syracuse lost twice to Robert Morris in the regular season by scores of 3-1 and 2-1 (with presumably empty netters at the end), but they tied 2-2 and Syracuse beat Robert Morris 5-1 at the end of January, so it's a very winable game for Syracuse.

Robert Morris defeats Syracuse 2-0 and earns their first trip to the NCAA Tournament.
