Sunday Round-Up

St. Lawrence played Princeton yesterday in the ECAC third place game, with their season pretty much on the line. I reverted to superstitious sports fan idiocy and decided not to listen to the game on the internet so that I wasn’t jinxing the Saints. Walked down to Caribou Coffee on Grandview Ave. and read a book to avoid the temptation to dial the game in on my computer. That was all for nought, though. The game ended in a tie, which by every account I’ve seen, means the Saints are out of the running for an NCAA bid (the game ostensibly ended in a shootout win for SLU in terms of ECAC results, but the NCAA does not count shootout results as official, so the game is in the books as a tie). Disappointing end to a hot and cold season for SLU.

Oddly, though, Ohio State is back in contention, despite being bounced in the second round of the CCHA playoffs. The selection show is on ESPN2 at 11:30 this morning, so we’ll know for sure then.
