The MSU men's basketball team is currently ranked eighth in the nation and after coming off three big conference wins on the road last week, the first place Mavericks are ready for the 2nd half of conference play.
Junior Connor O'Brien says the secret to the team's success is that they don't have to rely on one person.
He says the Mavericks have multiple weapons in their arsenal.
Head Coach Matt Margenthaler says that with the Mavericks being atop the NSIC, they have the target on their back.
With a 15–1 overall record and an 11–1 mark in the conference, the head coach says he likes what he is seeing.
Now the Mavs will get a second look at the conference teams, but they say that the game plan will remain the same to keep the victories coming.
The MSU men will return to action this weekend hosting Wayne State on Friday at 8, and Augustana on Saturday at 6. The Maverick women will play prior to the men.
