No. 4-seed Wisconsin will face No. 1-seed U-Mass Lowell in the NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament Friday at 3:30 in Manchester, New Hampshire.

The Badgers clinched an automatic berth to the tournament after winning the WCHA Final Five Championship Game. The win was Wisconsin's 21st in its last 30 games.

"You know before we started the playoffs, our goal was to play for another month," Wisconsin Head Coach Mike Eaves said. "We had that on the board in our room and we just keep checking it off. We got this done, then this done, now if we're successful this weekend, we got one more week to play."

Minnesota was given a No. 1-seed and will face Yale Friday at 1 p.m. in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

La Crescent native Eriah Hayes and the Minnesota State Mavericks will face Miami Ohio Saturday.
