Wild Card matchups set for 2016 OHL Cup

One day after the NCAA staged its “Selection Sunday,” organizers of the OHL Cup are hosting their own precursor to March Madness.

The road to the Cup became a bit clearer for 10 tournament hopefuls after their names were selected at random draw to participate in one of five Wild Card Play-In Games slated for Tuesday, March 15. Like the lower ranked NCAA basketball teams that hope to find lightning in a bottle come tournament tip-off,  these 10 teams are looking to replicate the performance of the Sean Monahan-led Mississauga Rebels in 2010 and become just the second Wild Card team to go on and win the OHL Cup.

The matchups are as follows:
