On Saturday the Gophers will be looking to defend their home field in tournament play once again. But this time it’s on a slightly bigger stage.
Today, Minnesota was announced as a No. 4 seed and host for the NCAA Tournament. With two straight wins in the Big Ten Tournament at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium, the Gophers look to be the odds-on favorite as they take on NC State.

Not only are the Gophers currently on a nine game unbeaten streak, they also have the added incentive of hosting a second round match if they can top NC State. After getting knocked out in the second round last year, home field advantage could certainly make a deeper run a reality.
