      And Alaska-Anchorage made a three-peat of NCAA tourney appearance as an independent from 1990 to 1992.

      Anchorage's 1992 appearance is the last in the tourney by an independent school.

        Some good stuff in this thread:

        NCAA tournament bid for Arizona State?

        I'm not so sure about that but the good news is when they drop one or two against D3 Wisconsin Eau Claire, it won't count against them in the D1 tournament selection criteria.

        A good USHL team would beat U of Arizona?

        Yeah, definitely. An average Minnesota high school team would as well.

          I'd argue that Niagara in 2000 counts. They played 17 CHA games sans the tournament in Huntsville (which they won because Greg Gardner kicked the goal off its moorings to invalidate a UAH tying marker, NOT THAT I AM STILL BITTER), with just five of them going farther than a bus ride (UAH, BSU, and one at Air Force, splitting the other game with CC). Was the CHA a conference? Technically, yes.

              Just to reiterate. When the City of Lincoln and the Huskers built and finished Pinnacle Bank Arena 3 years ago, all the plumbing necessary to make ice were added to the building. This was a last minute addition before the floor was poured. The only thing missing is the above the ground ice making/refrigeration equipment.

              The University of Nebraska is currently building the Breslow Ice Center right next door to Pinnacle Bank Arena. This is a 700 seat facility. Since Pinnacle Bank Arena is a multipurpose facility that hosts all sorts of events besides Husker Basketball like concerts and other events (Note: The Husker Volleyball team does NOT play at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The Devaney Center was converted to a volleyball only faculty at the same time Pinnacle Bank Arena was being built and they play there) it woukd not be avilabe for hockey purposes as often as needed. This would be particularly true if the Huskers added both a men's and women's program (potentially being forced to do so because of Title IX issues). The Breslow Ice Center is a single rink facility but is being built so that it might be expanded.

              Presumably, any incipient men's or women's Husker hockey program would play in Pinnacle Bank Center and practice in the Breslow Center, as necessary,if PBA is in use for some other purpose that would not allow practice to take place there.

              Right now, the school's only announced plans for the facility is that the school's club hockey team, which has not even played their games in Lincoln for a decade, will be playing at Breslow.
              Okay... so Syracuse has Tennity for practices. It's not right next door to the ONCenter but so what? It still seems comparable.

                Tennity is owned and run run by Recreation Services and not the SU Athletic Department. According the women's head coach that relationship is not perfect and it sounds like adding a men's team would add more issues.

                Who will run the Breslow Ice Center?

                    Just to be clear. My disinterest in this team became of the Uni's disinterest. Without the success of the hockey team, the other teams would not be where they are. Way to pay back the hockey team. **** UAA.

                      Wasn't the rule back then that the best independent team got a bid?

                            I don't recall if it was a written rule or not, but yes, due to the number of independent teams at the time one was invited to the NCAA tournament from 1988-1992.

                              I think the question remains. I am fairly (somwhat? ) positive that SCSU was not eligible for any post-season play its first year of play which wasn't technically part of the WCHA, but I fully admit I could be off and am either not remembering circumstances correctly or thinking of another sport altogether.

                                St. Cloud made the NCAA Tournament as an independent in 1989 (between Merrimack's appearance and UAA's three straight appearances).
