It really shouldn’t come as any surprise. We are now eight weeks into the regular season and just two unbeaten teams remain in the region: North Dakota and Grand Valley State. It certainly appears that the Lakers and Fighting Sioux are on another postseason collision course to decide who represents us in the national semifinals.
But the Northwest Region is loaded with good teams this year and several others will still have their say in this before it’s over. St. Cloud State looks like the third best team right now. Northwood and Michigan Tech will both get their shot at the Lakers yet in the regular season while Nebraska-Omaha and South Dakota will have the same opportunity against UND. And there are a handful of other teams that could still sneak up and make a run at the postseason. All I know is that these last three weeks before the playoffs are going to be fun to watch!
