Harvard wins title on Kenny Smith goal

Harvard won their conference tournament as the #6 seed on the strength of a goal by Oiler prospect Kenny Smith.

North Dakota (Matt Greene) lost to Minnesota in the WCHA final.

Michigan (David Rohlfs) lost to Ohio State inthe CCHA final.

The National tournament starts next Thursday, I'll let you know which Oiler guys on which teams are selected to play in the 16 team tourney.

OK. I need a quick primer here. On USCHO.com they are talking about a selection process for the NCAA tournament. How many teams are selected and how are they chosen?

Thanks in advance.

16 get in. There are 6 conferences with automatic bids, those champions all get in.

The ten at large spots are determined by a formula. What they do is compare you against all the other teams with an RPI .5000 or better (RPI is just like hoops RPI, basically a weighted winning percentage) on four different criteria: RPI, record against common opponents, record against teams with RPI .5000 or better, and head to head. If you beat a team, you get a point. Teams are ranked based on points. RPI is the tiebreaker. The ten teams at the top without autobids get in.

current pairwise plus copious explanatory information.

Cool, he has something in common with Doug Lynch now. DL scored the memorial cup winner for the Red Deer Rebs if I'm not mistaken.

For those of you with the NHL Network, they replayed the game.

Smith is a very impressive player. His skating is solid, he plays physical, and he seemed to have great positional play.

I think we have a winner here.

Yes Doug Lynch scored the OT winner in Regina when the Rebels won the MC against Val D Or.
