This past NCAA season was phenomenal. Plenty of contenders, pretenders & a lot in between. I think the overall parity of the game was on full display this year. Denver & Minnesota-Duluth were there from start to finish, Harvard was too but fell just short. BU, UMass-Lowell, Penn St., Union, & Ohio St all had…… Continue reading Random Thoughts On This Past Season (Part 1)
