The arena was located across the street from Lambeau Field.

Resch Center staff has made new ice and painted it with the NCAA logos in preparation for the 2011 NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Midwest Regional March 26 & 27. The event will be hosted by Michigan Tech University and PMI Entertainment Group.

The University of Denver, Western Michigan University, the University of North Dakota and R.P.I. will face off on Saturday.

Why is there an NCAA regional game in Green Bay??? Come on, the wizards who run the tourney couldn't find a better site?

Not many schools want to bid for the NCAA ice hockey regionals. They have to guarantee ticket sales, can't sell beer/alcohol and remove all sponsor signage from the building.

I'd expect close to a sellout for the Sioux games.

Because Green Bay had the best bid.

Anyone can bid on these - put up the most money and you have good chance to win hosting duties.

Don't imagine more than 50 DU fans up there unless some Chicago alums drive up...

Don't forget Makowski played in GB for 3 years & was/is well liked. i think you will see a strong DU crowd and sentiment. More"DU" fans than you might think due to this factor.
