DIII Men's Lacrosse: 2014 Selection Show

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Committee has selected the teams that will compete in the 2014 NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Championship.

Interactive Bracket Printable

The championship provides for a 30-team tournament. Automatic qualification (AQ) is granted to 20 conference champions, which form “Pool A.” Five teams are selected from true independents and schools from conferences that do not have an automatic bid for their champions (Pool B). The remaining five 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 for the championship game at M&T Bank Stadium, which will be played at 1 p.m. ET, May 25, and shown via web stream on NCAA.com. That game will be followed by the Division II championship at 4 p.m. ET, which can also be seen on NCAA.com. The Division I semifinals and championship are May 24 and 26 at the same site.
