El Paso, Texas -- After a long week of waiting the Regional Tournament is finally here. The Miners (29-3-1) will take on No. 6 Denver University Friday, February 24th at 9am at the Greeley Ice Haus in Greeley, Colorado.
The Denver Pioneers, lead by leading scorer Brian Desmound (32 games – 40 goals, 24 assists), finished their season (20-11-1). One notable match up was against UNLV back on February 15th where the Pioneers topped the Rebels 4-2. UNLV is the top seed at the ACHA Western Regional Tournament.
Although the Miners have never played the Pioneers, they have played a common opponent, Northern Arizona University. Both the Miners (2-0 loss) and Pioneers (8-5 loss) suffered a loss to the Ice Jacks.
