MSU Basketball Teams Slay Dragons In NSIC Tournament

Posted: Updated:

The MSU men and women basketball teams were both looking to reach the NSIC tournament semifinals when they hit the floor at Bresnan Arena.
Both Maverick teams were taking on the Dragons from the other MSU for the chance to advance to the final four in Rochester next week, with the men starting the show for a change.
The Dragons actually led the majority of the first half, but the second half was all the Mavericks.  Assem Marei led the team with 16 points and 14 rebounds as MSU runs away with it 87-63.

The MSU women took control of their game early, jumping out to a 20-0 lead on Moorhead.  The Mavericks would cruise from there as Ali Wilkinson led the way with 23 and MSU defeats the Dragons 75-57.
