  • Oberlin ran the gauntlet at Ohio Valley Regionals, surviving close calls to win the deep region. Less fortunate was Cedarville, who went 2-4, a damaging performance that made them to counterweight to the weekend’s largest riser. Meanwhile, Messiah split with Franciscan, pulling them into the rankings and Fatal down.
  • Missouri S&T was one of the surprises of the postseason, sending the reigning champions, Colorado College packing in the real season. On the Power Rankings board, it was Colorado School of Mines they bumped from their South Central perch.
  • A fifth place finish at NC Regionals, including a loss to Carthage, took a chunk out of Michigan Tech’s standing, sending them to the back end of the rankings.
