For the first time in the five year history of the CCM High School National Invitational Tournament, Team Wisconsin will send a pair of squads west to Plymouth, Minnesota to compete for the coveted NIT title.
The Senior team has already been finalized, with the twenty player roster chosen after the Wisconsin Senior Class Tournament. The U18 team will consist of high school juniors (96 or 97 birthyear) that were selected from last weekend's Select 17 Festival held in Green Bay.
For the first time, the CCM tourney will include eight teams, competing in four-team pools.
POOL A: Massachusetts, MN Seniors, Team Wisconsin U18, Michigan Seniors
POOL B: MN U18, North Dakota, Michigan U18, Team Wisconsin Seniors
Pool play will begin on Thursday, April 24th and will conclude on Saturday, April 26th. Final rounds games will take place on Sunday, April 27th starting at 8:00am with the seventh-place contest and will conclude with the title game to be held at 1:00pm.
The TW senior team won the inaugural CCM tourney in 2010, defeating North Dakota 4-1 for the championship. Their overall record (including preliminary round games) is 7-8-1.
