NCAA Tournament Quick Hits: Three Hockey East teams were selected to compete in the 2019 NCAA Tournament, as Massachusetts, Northeastern, and Providence remain in contention for the national title. Massachusetts earned the number one seed in the Northeast Regional and will battle in-state rival Harvard on Friday in Manchester, N.H. The Friars remain in Providence for the East Regional, taking on number three overall seed Minnesota State, while the Huskies join them and battle Cornell.

UMass' first NCAA appearance was in 2007, which opened with a 1- 0 win over Clarkson in Rochester, New York, before falling to Maine, 3-1 in the East Regional final. The Minutemen play Harvard, and are 1-6-1 all-time against the Crimson. UMass has never advanced to the Frozen Four.

The Friars enter their sixth-straight NCAA Tournament and are 1 5-19 all-time in the NCAA postseason. It will be just the ninth meeting all-time with Minnesota State. Providence is 6-2-0 all-time against the Mavericks.

Northeastern's automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament is the Huskies' seventh appearance in the national postseason. Over the weekend, NU won its 27th game of the year, the most wins in program history.
