D1 Minnesotans Win Conference Titles: Local players top the Horizon League, Missouri Valley, Summit League, Big Ten, Ivy League, Atlantic Sun, and Patriot League. Conference Playoffs begin this weekend with Minnesotans on ESPN+, BTN+, Summit League Netwo
The 2023 Season started with over 120 Minnesotans playing D1. Of those, 12 lucky (or not?) players from Minnesota have ended their regular season as Conference Champs, which reminds us how hard it is for most teams to win trophies. With the exception of Clare Gagne and the Brown 4 peat in the Ivy League, you can't expect to be on top year after year. This year we have Champions from Lipscomb, Nebraska, UW Milwaukee, Brown, Drake, Army and Denver, with plenty of local rivals eager to knock them off in the upcoming playoffs. Will South Dakota State get revenge on Denver and go back to the Tournament? Can Brown make a historic run after the 4 peat? Will Drake or UNI's MN squad reign supreme in the Missouri Valley? As always, ESPN+ and the Summit League Network are your best friends for catching D1 Minnesotans, with BTN+ and big BTN showing plenty as well. We focused on playoffs that are easily watchable and with the most Minnesotans who contribute, so there will be some players missed!
