Cougar men travel to Mankato for UMAC Tournament
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 Cougars will have another chance to avenge a previous loss when they open the Upper Midwest Athletic Tournament taking on the only team to beat them twice.
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.
