SNHU ends game on a 17-0 run, punches ticket to Elite 8

Third-seeded SNHU closed the game on a 17-0 run to shock top-seeded Saint Michael’s and win the NCAA Division II East Region Championship on Tuesday night in Colchester, Vt. The Penmen punch their ticket to the Elite 8 for the 8th time in school history and the first time since 2014-15.

The Penmen trailed 61-56 with 6:41 to play, but held the host Purple Knights scoreless the rest of the way to earn the come-from-behind victory and cut down the nets.

The eight remaining teams have been re-seeded for the D-II Elite 8 and SNHU has garnered the No. 7 seed and will take on No. 2 Nova Southeastern on Tuesday, March 26 at 3:30 pm in Evansville, Ind.
