The selections and seedings for the Men's Division I NCAA Tournament were announced on Sunday evening on ESPNU. The University of Denver Lacrosse team will face #6 ranked Stony Brook University next Saturday at 3 PM MT on ESPN-U.

Quick Analysis: Denver heads to Long Island and take on the Seawolves after defeating them March 20th. That win started the Pioneers on a nine-game win streak that carried them through the ECAC slate unbeaten and gave Bill Tierney a trip to the tournament in his first season in Denver. (Denver's third overall). Stony Brook hasn't lost since falling by three at home to Cornell on March 23rd.

The ESPNU Selection Show commentators gave no chance for DU to advance, which should help them get more fired up to beat Stony Brook (again).

They might beat Stony Brook. No shot in hell against UVA.

Sounds similar to another selection show a couple of months back...........Don't count your self out Pio's, look what RIT did......;)

Sometimes the favorite never shows up to play...too many distractions.

I'm not sure any sports team in history has the baggage hanging over them that Virginia does.

DU needs to take care of business against Stony Brook and then worry about UVA.

I feel like that bracket picture would look way sweeter if Boone was on it and not just two goofy letters.
