Men: Second NCAA regional rankings released

Compiled by D3hockey.com Staff

The NCAA released its second set of men's regional rankings on Tuesday and the regional No. 1's remain unchanged as Norwich and St. Norbert remain atop the East and West Region rankings, respectively.

 

This week's West Region rankings remain the same as a week ago, but the same cannot be said for the East Region as Oswego moved ahead of Endicott for the No. 2 spot, while Hamilton and Amherst were big gainers and now stand in the No. 5 and No. 6 spots, respectively.

Those were not the only notable movements, as Trinity entered at No. 9 to make its first appearance of the season, while Babson fell two spots to No. 7 and Williams, the previous No. 6, paid dearly for a pair of weekend losses by falling out of the rankings completely.

Used to determine both NCAA tournament bids and seedings, this week's rankings are the second of four sets that will be released to the public.  Additional rankings will follow on February 28, while the final rankings generated on March 5 and used to determine the NCAA tournament selections will be released on March 6.   The numbers used by the regional committees to generate these rankings are sometimes made available to the public.
