Division III tournament announced
Twenty-six teams announced for 2011 DIII tournament
INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Committee has selected the teams that will compete in the 2011 NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Championship.
The championship provides for a 26-team tournament. Automatic qualification (AQ) is granted to 16 conference champions, which form “Pool A.” Four teams are selected from true independents and schools from conferences that do not have an automatic bid for their champions (Pool B). The remaining six teams are selected from those teams in conferences with automatic bids that did not win their conference’s AQ and the remaining Pool B institutions (Pool C). The teams are geographically paired, whenever possible.
Except for the championship game, all games will be played on the campus of one of the competing teams. This year’s finalists will advance to Baltimore, Md., for the championship game at M&T Bank Stadium, which will be played at 7 p.m., May 29. That game will be preceded by the Division II championship at 4 p.m. The Division I semifinals and championship are May 28 and 30 at the same site.
