The Wildcats, 15-12 overall and 7-9 in America East, will face third-seed Boston University in the quarterfinals of the tournament at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 10. UNH swept the regular season series from the Terriers, including a 76-63 victory in the final home game of the regular season on February 25.
If UNH defeats BU, it will face the winner of the Stony Brook/Vermont quarterfinal matchup on Saturday, March 11, at 1 p.m. in the first semifinal game of the day. The Wildcats were swept by the Seawolves and split the season series with the Catamounts, including a 57-54 loss to Vermont in UNH's regular season finale last Wednesday.
A semifinal victory advances the Wildcats to the championship game on Sunday, March 12, at 2 p.m. Among the possible opponents are top-seed and tournament host Hartford, who lost only one conference game all season, fourth-seeded Binghamton, fifth-seeded UMBC, and the winner of the first-round game between Maine and Albany.
All games involving the Wildcats will be broadcast by the UNH Sports Radio Network, with Jim Jeannotte and Mike Murphy calling the games live from Hartford. Those broadcasts are also available on the Internet through Yahoo Broadcast. Fox Sports New England will televise the tournament semifinals and finals live.
