The Mavericks have locked down opposing offenses this season ... recording 16 shutouts ... one shy of a program record ...
In the squad's final tune–up before the tourney MSU topped Augustana 2–0.
"It's the key to everything that we do is making sure we keep teams off the board, and limit their opportunities, we have a tremendous back line, tremendous goalkeeping crew. Like I said that's a quality Auggie attack," said Brian Bahl, MSU head coach.
The Mavs will try to keep that momentum rolling into the tournament . We'll have highlights of second round contest on KEYC News 12.
