The CWPA Western division wrapped this past weekend with an amazing game between the Maryland Terrapins and Michigan Wolverines for the top seed. Maryland won the game to earn the regular season title and the top seed in this weekends conference tournament. The conference tournament is being held at the Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center on the Indiana Campus.
The Western division is going to be tough as any of the top four teams can realistically win this tournament between Maryland, Michigan, Indiana and Hartwick. The edge might actually go to the No. 3 seed Indiana Hoosiers since they are first the host and these are the first home games all year, they beat Michigan on the road, defeated Hartwick by four goals at a neutral site and lost to Maryland by only one goal.
It looks like only the Indiana games will be shown online at this point, at least when I checked the All-Access section on Indiana's website. It also appears to be free.
