    The NCAA Division II Playoffs are down to the Super Regional finals, and the four games this upcoming Saturday will determine the National Semifinalists. With the Bearcats and Hornets playing each other last week, it was ensured an MIAA team would play in the regional final for the 12th time in the last 13 seasons (only the 2014 season being the exception since the 2004 campaign, which was also the year the playoffs expanded to from 16 to 24 teams).
