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.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
