The Great Danes finished the season 12-3, though one of those losses was to Syracuse on Feb. 21. In that game, Nick Mariano and Derek DeJoe each notched a hat trick in a 16-7 win. 

Should Syracuse advance, it would play the winner of Maryland and the winner of Quinnipiac or Hartford in the NCAA Quarterfinals.

The game will be televised on ESPNU.
