COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. – We’re back in the land of the Land of 10,000 Lakes as St. John’s hopes to give the UMLC two teams in the quarterfinals.
It won’t be easy, however.
D-II Round 2: Colorado Denver at St. John's | https://t.co/0ymzgHh06k #virtualmcla20
— MCLA Tournament '21 (@MCLA_Tournament) April 9, 2020
Despite carrying the label of a “satellite” campus of the flagship Boulder institution, Colorado Denver has a student-body ten times the size of St. John’s.
That can make a difference.
The No. 25 Lynx put it to good use in the first round, knocking off No. 8 Northern Arizona.
Colorado Denver took 483-of-862 votes to clear the Lumberjacks by 12 percentage points.
Despite it’s relatively small enrollment, No. 9 St. John’s took No. 24 North Florida to the woodshed.
The Johnnies captured 886 of the 1,370 votes cast – a whopping 29 percentage points.
Who has the goods to make it to the elite eight?
