Despite expectations, things didn't come easy for Mavs

MSU needed 13-game unbeaten streak to end season


With the way the other conference tournaments were shaking out, Minnesota State went into the Final Five championship game not at all locked into a spot for the national tournament. Only a victory over Ferris State would guarantee their season would keep going.

“I will say there was a belief and a how-to from this group,” Hastings said. “They stuck together.”

The Mavericks left Mankato on Thursday and will practice today at the DCU Center at Worcester, Mass., site of the regional.

“We want to be a team the rest of the town wants to be proud of,” Grant said.

NCAA Northeast Regional DCU Center, Worcester, Mass. Saturday Denver vs. Boston College, 3 p.m. Minnesota State vs. UMass Lowell, 6:30 p.m. Sunday Championship, 4 p.m.
