It should be a fun atmosphere, but don't expect it to be a "home stand" for MSU-M.
    Agreed. I'm glad it's in Sioux Falls, since I already had tickets, and there will certainly be a lot more Mav fans than there would be in Worcester or Allentown, but I can't think we'll hold any significant number edge over SCSU or UMD.

    On a separate note, SCSU does have a legit complaint about sacrificing bracket integrity for the sake of reducing other teams' travel expenses. Although I don't know that there's a significant difference in teams 6 through 12 in the Pairwise, you can argue that as the #1 overall seed, you shouldn't have to face anyone higher than the #8 overall seed in the second round.
