Little bit of local sports news here. Yesterday at 2:30 pm the NCAA announced this years Division 3 tournament bracket. After winning the Commonwealth Coast Conference the Nor’easters of the University of New England locked in their spot in this years Division 3 NCAA tournament.
The University of New England had a very good season going 23-5. For the fifth year in a row the Nor’easters won the Commonwealth Common Coast, which is a very special accomplishment considering that 5 out of the 11 players on the roster are first-years.
Although it took a lot of hard work to get into the tournament, the Nor’easters are going to work very hard at practice before their first game on Friday March 3rd. The Nor’easters have to take on #19 Scranton. Scranton is a very tough team and it is going to take a great performance from UNE to beat them. It will be especially tough since Scranton will be playing at home. Playing at home is a huge advantage for a team and the Nor’easters are definitely going to have their work cut out for them, but in the end its anybody’s game.
This is going to be great game to watch, hope everybody tunes for the live stream on Friday to watch this first round game between the University of New England and #19 Scranton.
