National Championship Banners at 19
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – There's a new banner hanging from the rafters at the NCAA's Frozen Four and it reads: YALE, National Champions, 2013.
The new 8 x 20-foot blue, black and white plastic banner upset the symmetry of the procession because it is the 19th team honored. The Bulldogs joined the exclusive fraternity of champions by winning last year's Frozen Four at Pittsburgh.
The championship banners, which are lined up in alphabetical order, move from city to city and the Elis are currently being honored in that group at the men's 2014 Frozen Four inside the Wells Fargo Center, home of the Philadelphia Flyers. Yale's banner, which sits beside Wisconsin, next flies at TD Bank Boston Garden for the 2015 Frozen Four.
