Will a New England-based team bring home the NCAA Tournament trophy for the first time since Williams in 2018?
The Ephs, themselves, will have a say, contributing to 13 local teams -- of 64 total -- that have earned bids to the national tournament. That’s just over 20% of the overall field, and six representatives are from the vaunted NESCAC.

As of now, the national final is scheduled for Dec. 4 at Kerr Stadium in Salem, Va.
