The Three Rivers Classic features four Division I hockey teams for the first time, as the puck will drop at Pittsburgh’s CONSOL Energy Center Dec. 28-29 with RMU, Miami, Ohio State and Penn State all eager to show their skills.
How has the program gone about promoting the first-of-its-kind event? How have Schooley and the Colonials prepared themselves for the big stage? What are the plans for future editions of this showcase?
Matt and Larry also ask Derek about the season thus far, the growth of the sport in western Pennsylvania and what RMU is planning for March, when it hosts the NCAA Frozen Four for the first time. Schooley also provides details on how to help former Colonials captain Chris Kushneriuk, who is fighting cancer.
