The MCLA selection committee released the teams and pairings for the national championship, which will be played at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Denver starting on May 11. Much of the choices were obvious, but the tournament is not without its surprises.

Here’s my view of the final product.

Kennesaw State – I don’t think there’s much question that SCAD played a more difficult schedule, but Kennesaw finished with a trip to the SELC championship game, defeating SCAD in the semifinals. Personally, I thought KSU was a cinch, but Ken Lovic, the committee chair, made a point of saying that teams are not credited for a late-season run and was likely referring to the Owls.
