WMU hockey left out of NCAA tournament
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Western Michigan's modest 2-year NCAA Hockey Tournament streak came to an end Sunday night, as the Broncos were left out of this year's 16-team tournament field.
WMU was ranked 9th in the country heading into the CCHA quarterfinals, but a sweep by Michigan, coupled with some unfortunate conference tournament results across the country left the Broncos on the outside.
Western opened the season 11-4-1, and were expected to not only make the field, but perhaps to be sent to the Grand Rapids regional.
The Broncos stumbled in their final 22 games, though, going just 8-7-7.
