The quarterfinals are set for the 2012 CCHA tournament. A rather uneventful weekend saw all but one of the higher seeds advance out of the first round. The only higher seed that didn't advance was Northern Michigan, which was upset by last-place Bowling Green in the only series that went three games.
Because Bowling Green did advance to the quarterfinals, Michigan ended up drawing Notre Dame for its opponent this weekend in the CCHA tournament. The Wolverines would have played Lake Superior had every single higher seed advanced, but with Bowling Green moving on, the Fighting Irish will be headed to Yost Arena this weekend.
Here's a look at the matchups for the quarterfinals:
No. 1 Ferris State vs. No. 11 Bowling Green
No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 8 Notre Dame
No. 3 Western Michigan vs. No. 7 Lake Superior
No. 4 Miami (Ohio) vs. No. 5 Michigan State
These best-of-three series will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday if necessary. The four winners will advance to the semifinals, which will be held at Joe Louis Arena on Friday, March 16. The third-place and championship games are slated for Saturday, March 17 in Detroit.
