Wisconsin top seed in NCAA Midwest, Ferris State hopes for another trip to Frozen Four

CINCINNATI - Wisconsin reached the NCAA Frozen Four title game in 2010 and lost to Boston College. Ferris State got there in 2012 ... and lost to Boston College.

The Badgers and the Bulldogs are back in the tournament as the top two seeds in the Midwest Regional, looking to get in position for a title.

Wisconsin (24-10-2) plays North Dakota State (23-13-3) in the semifinals on Friday night. Ferris State (28-10-3) plays Colgate (20-13-5) in the other semifinal.

Wisconsin and North Dakota State haven't played this season. Ferris State and Colgate have played three times — unusual for nonconference teams — with Colgate winning twice. The Raiders' 3-0 win on Jan. 4 became a turning point for both teams.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
