Heads up: March Madness lives

OK, so no Alabama teams made it to the Big Dance. Heck, even Alabama flamed out in the first round of the NIT. That doesn’t mean the state’s post-season reign is over.

Enter the University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers. They’re not headed to the Final Four — they’re playing for a shot at the Frozen Four. As in hockey. It’s the only university-sponsored team in the South.

The team claimed an automatic tourney berth by winning the College Hockey America championship over Robert Morris. The Chargers’ record? A lousy 13-19-3. But they’re in, and the selection show starts at 1:30 today on ESPN2.

Update: UAH will play top seed Notre Dame in the first round, 4 p.m. Friday in Grand Rapids, Mich.
