The University of Minnesota, Morris men's basketball team won the last two games of the regular season by 15 and 25 points, respectively, each time beating a team they had previously lost to.

The test will be stiff, though, as they match up with regular-season champ Bethany Lutheran. The Vikings were undefeated until falling in overtime to Crown Saturday in the season finale.

The Cougars finish the regular season 7-7 in the UMAC for fourth place and the final berth in the tournament.

Morris and Bethany Lutheran played a pair of close games in the regular season, with the Cougars falling on a buzzer-beater in Morris, before seeing a late lead evaporate in Mankato.

They will tip-off at 7:30 in Mankato on Wednesday.
