"We're outliers in this world, not only geographically but also from an emotional and mental standpoint from all the others, the Eastern establishment". The Midshipmen advanced to the NCAA Tournament after posting a 15-5 victory over top-seeded Loyola in the Patriot League Tournament, marking the team's fifth championship and ending the Greyhounds' 41-game winning streak against league opponents. DU defeated Air Force 14-6 on February 11 at Barton Stadium.

Last year, the Trojans rewrote the record books when they received the tournament's fifth seed and hosted first- and second-round games at the LA Memorial Coliseum. Overall, "Cuse is 19-4 against Yale in the team's history, including a 4-0 mark in the Carrier Dome". Rhodes, now ranked No. 2 in the South Region, has an 18-0 record and defeated IWU, 17-6, in the 2017 season-opener in Memphis on February 17.

Both teams earned the berths despite losing in the semifinals of their Big Ten tournaments.

His next win in the NCAA Tournament would tie his mentor, former Orange head coach Roy Simmons Jr. for third on the all-time list. Anything is possible. I like how we are playing, so I think we are in good shape.
