NSCC shifts to Saturday start

The third annual North Star College Cup will feature a semifinal matchup between the tournament’s first two champions but on Saturday rather than Friday. The University of Minnesota announced today that the NSCC is adopting a Saturday-Sunday format beginning in 2016 after two years of utilizing a Friday-Saturday arrangement.

That means defending champion Bemidji State will square off against inaugural champ Minnesota at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30 following Minnesota State and St. Cloud State’s 1 p.m. semifinal contest at Xcel Energy Center in downtown St. Paul.

The winners will battle for in-state bragging rights in Sunday’s 4 p.m. title game while the puck drops in the consolation game at 1 p.m.
