Division III Men's Lacrosse Championship selections announced

DIII Men's Lacrosse: 2017 Selection Show

INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Committee has selected the teams that will compete in the 2017 NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Championship.

The championship provides for a 34-team tournament. Automatic qualification (AQ) is granted to 24 conference champions, which form “Pool A.” Three teams are selected from true independents and schools from conferences that do not have an automatic bid for their champions (Pool B). The remaining seven 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. First-round competition will be held on Tuesday, May 9 with the winners advancing to play in the second round on Wednesday, May 10. The 16 remaining teams will play in the third round on Saturday, May 13. The quarterfinals will take place on Wednesday, May 17 and the semifinals will be played Sunday, May 21.

This year’s finalists will advance to Foxborough, Massachusetts, for the championship game at Gillette Stadium, which will be played at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday, May 28, and shown via web stream on NCAA.com. That game will be preceded by the Division II championship at 2 p.m. ET, which can also be seen on NCAA.com. The Division I semifinals and championship are Saturday, May 27 and Monday, May 29 at the same site.
