The Gusties, who are rated #3 nationally and #1 in the Midwest Region, will now move to NCAA Tournament play next weekend. Gustavus (26-6) will host a four-team regional next Saturday and Sunday. The complete tournament field will be announced on Monday afternoon. Carleton (20-3), which finished second in the tournament and during the regular season, will also receive strong consideration for a NCAA Tournament bid.
