REA could host Women’s Frozen Four

The NCAA will announce sites for the Women’s Frozen Four for 2014-18 in about a month and a half.

On Wednesday, it listed four finalists:

  • Ralph Engelstad Arena, Grand Forks (UND host)
  • Ridder Arena, Minneapolis (Minnesota host)
  • Whittemore Center Arena, Durham, N.H. (New Hampshire host)
  • Family Arena, St. Charles, Mo. (Lindenwood host)

I believe the winners will be announced about December 11. That’s also when they will have some men’s hockey announcements.

The NCAA announced 10 Men’s Frozen Four finalists today: Boston, Buffalo, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Washington, D.C., St. Paul, Chicago, Tampa.

UND also submitted a bid to host the NCAA Regionals in Fargo. They’ll find out if they earned that in December, too.

  1. Chicago and St. Paul are the only options west of Columbus?? Why isn’t St. Louis, Denver, Michigan, Wisconsin, etc… joining the mix on this?

  2. Of these 10 Boston, Buffalo, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Washington, D.C., St. Paul, Chicago, Tampa. This looks like a lot of repeats in the last 4 yrs.

        • ND. It may not be but nor was Tampa but its always fun to get to cities I have not been to yet. So its great when I can combine seeing a new place with college Hockey great. Plus when you have a NHL franchise there is hockey fans to talk shop pro & college.

      • ncaa has bigger problems than a niche sport and it’s tournaments… which is very unfortunate for us. College football is so big that there are people talking about college football just telling the ncaa to not bother them and they will run things on their own. no one says that anyone has to belong to the ncaa. why not just ditch a system that is antiquated and find something that works? for hockey? for football? for whatever…
