Penn State men's hockey Big Ten title hopes come to an end at Notre Dame; Lions now await NCAA fate

"Watching some of the teams that are in it, this is a terrific field with many good teams and many which are feeling they were probably slighted by the NCAA Tournament". "I'm proud of what our team has accomplished this season".

The victor of Michigan-Ohio State, which was being played late on Saturday night, will face ND in the conference title game next weekend for the right to be called 2018 Big Ten champs after PSU won the conference a year ago.

Penn State will not be repeating as Big Ten champions in men's hockey.

The Nittany Lions will play in the National Invitational Tournament (NIT) beginning this week. The Nittany Lions have just two seniors, Shep Garner and Julian Moore, on their 2017-18 roster. Penn State is one of seven former NIT Champions in the 2018 field.

Should Notre Dame continue to earn victories in the tournament, they would host the second round (March 16 -19) and quarterfinals (March 20 & 21) at Purcell Pavilion before heading to Madison Square Garden for the semifinals (March 27) and final (March 29). Sophomore guard Tony Carr was selected first-team All-Big Ten and USBWA All-District and to the Big Ten All-Tournament Team.

Penn State had not made a postseason appearance since 2014, when it earned its first and only CBI bid in program history.

First round action, on campus sites, features number one seeds Baylor, Notre Dame, Saint Mary's and Southern California hosting Wagner, Hampton, Southeastern Louisiana and UNC Asheville, respectively. Among the notable omissions from the tournament included Middle Tennessee, USC, Saint Mary's, Notre Dame, Louisville, Marquette and Oklahoma State.

Temple finished the regular season with a record of 17-15 and finished seventh in the American Athletic Conference (AAC).

Notre Dame is making its 12th appearance in the NIT and first since the end of the 2009 season.
