The Denver Pioneers will be looking to hear their name called soon as the 2012 NCAA Tournament Men's Lacrosse Selection Show is happening on Sunday night. ESPNU will be airing the show as the Pioneers look to make their third consecutive NCAA Tournament.
An at-large invitation is potentially what the Pioneers are looking at after losing in the ECAC Tournament. Denver finished the season with an 8-6 record, losing 14-13 in overtime to No. 3 Loyola, Md. in the semifinals of the conference tournament.
Denver head coach Bill Tierney has won six NCAA National Championships in his career, all at Princeton, and he's looking to bring similar success to Denver now. After Tierney was hired in 2009, the Pioneers won their first NCAA Tournament game last season, and they're hoping to go even further in 2012.
