Courrier column: Maverick men turned it around in a hurry

(Continued)

If the Mavericks survive this weekend’s trip to St. Cloud State and Minnesota-Duluth, the schedule looks pretty good. There’s a home game with Augustana on Jan. 26, then a Feb. 25-26 road trip to Upper Iowa and Winona State.

Then comes the conference tournament. With a realigning of the regions, putting the Northern Sun with the tough Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association and Great American Conference, there will be fewer berths into the national tournament this spring, meaning the Mavericks have put themselves in good position through 14 games but still need a good finish.

That’s a nice change from last season, when the final two months of the season were painful to watch.
