Minnesota wins 5-4. 

Next season Minnesota faces Michigan in the Championship Match. 
Midwest goes up against Upstate in the Consolation Match. (That was certainly a pleasure to type.)

Thanks to everyone who participated! Competition has really heated up among the Big Four.

Many of us bragged that Upstate would one day be defeated...well that day has arrived. Gotta give props to Michigan for accomplishing this impressive feat. 

Has the changing of the old guard already begun?  The Big Four conferences look VERY strong this season, and I think that will be the case for the seasons to come. The gap between Upstate and everyone else may have been closed once and for all.

I hope Upstaters enjoyed their dominance while it lasted.

*LIKE* (esp. the last sentence)

Man, they didn't even quietly get edged out in a 5-4 finish, but got schooled 6-3.  I can't talk too much trash, though, because we play them next season.  And unfortunately with 5 great players graduating, it will be a down year for RHIT.

We lost 3 games by a combined 4 points so don't get too excited by your small victory.
6/4/2012 12:25 PM
Small victory or large victory...it all adds up to a loss. That means Upstate can no longer assert dominance in Wooden D3. 
6/4/2012 1:52 PM
I thought dominance was asserted in the NT as well? I'm pretty sure we're going to be OK...      
6/4/2012 2:28 PM
I guess we'll make the final evaluation after the NT then...

Settle down girls, it's not like the Upstate has never lost a challenge before.  We've had about half the Final Four teams over the last 4 seasons and had the top conference RPI for who knows how many straight seasons.  It'll take more than a few lucky bounces in one possession games to bring down the empire.
