Primary Factors for Selecting Teams

The Division II Men's Lacrosse Committee considers (in no specified order) the following factors in making selections for the tournament, with an emphasis on in-region results: Secondary Factors for Selecting Teams

If evaluation of the primary criteria does not result in a decision, the committee will consider the following secondary criteria in the selection process (again not in priority order):
  • Results against Division II out-of-region competition
  • Results against common opponents
  • Results against teams already selected
Input is also provided by regional advisory committees. However, coaches' or other polls or rankings are not used by the selection committee.

Teams must have played a minimum of eight games during the traditional season against Division II opponents to be considered for tournament selection.
