FYI to all of you closely following the Danny DeKeyser sweepstakes...

Western Michigan was eliminated from the CCHA Tournament last night, after getting swept by Michigan in the CCHA Quarterfinals. This means that WMU won't get an auto bid into the NCAA Tournament.

However.....

The Broncos still have a shot at an at-large bid, due to their current [as of this posting] Pairwise Ranking (PWR). The PWR is what determines the at-large bids, seedings, etc. to the NCAA Tournament. Whether WMU gets into or misses the NCAA Tournament altogether will depend on how well (or not so well) other "bubble" teams (such as BU and Wisconsin) do next weekend in their respective conference semis/finals.

Having said all of this, if WMU does indeed miss the tourney, you can bet that DeKeyser will be snapped up very shortly thereafter.
