Attendance announcement made

Attendance for the day's action at Memorial Coliseum has been announced as 4,133.

Since that doesn't tell us how many people had single-game tickets and left after Miami's 2-1 victory over Alabama-Huntsville, I feel pretty good about my estimations.

I think there were 2,900 here for the first game and there are about 3,800 for Michigan's game against Bemidji State, which the Wolverines lead 2-0 after two periods.

Still, Coliseum officials better keep their fingers crossed that Michigan hangs on. Michigan vs. Miami would be the best final they could get to bring fans into the building.
