Cornell Beats #1 Seed Michigan in OT – Regional Final Tonight

I didn’t think that after the ECAC semifinal debacle in Atlantic City that Cornell would get an NCAA tournament bid.

But they beat Colgate 3-0 in the ECAC consolation game and were given a slot in the NCAA tournament, facing #2 national ranked Michigan (#1 in Midwest regional).

I watched this one on ESPNU last night from Wildflowers in Hopewell.

Great game – Cornell sat on a 2-1 lead for the entire third period, but Michigan tied it with 4 minutes left.

I figured Cornell would lose in OT, given that momentum.

But Big Red came out of the defensive shell they lapsed into in the third period and looked confident, scoring the winner just 3;35 into overtime.

Regional final at 8 pm tonight, v. #2 seed Ferris State (who beat Denver). Winner moves on to the Frozen Four (in Florida of all places!)

Read the Cornell writeup and see more great photos.
