For just over an hour on Sunday, Michele Durand thought her team was going to New York. She wasn’t pleased.

“When I first heard, I was mad, because I thought we would host,” Durand said with a smile after practice on Monday.

Just after noon on Sunday, the NCAA announced the host locations for the next two rounds of the Division III women’s basketball tournament. Durand, the coach of the undefeated, fifth-ranked Northern women’s basketball team, did not understand why her team would not be hosting.

Conversely, nine games were also decided by less than five points.
