SCOUTING THE OPPOSITION
Michigan Tech will play three games in four days in the state of Minnesota beginning on Friday and wrapping up Monday night. Up first is St. Cloud State who enters the weekend 1-0 after defeating Valley City State University 81-57 at home this past Saturday.

Theis and Brehna Evans shared the team lead in rebounds with six each. All of the aforementioned players were in the starting lineup last weekend. Tech will play St. Cloud State on the campus of MSU-Moorhead.

MSU-Moorhead is 2-0 coming into the week after solid wins over No. 11 Central Missouri 58-56 and Rogers State 98-41 in Aberdeen, South Dakota last weekend. Megan Hintz is the top scorer for the Dragons through the first two games of the season thanks to a 21.0 points per game scoring average. She has connected on nearly 70 percent of her shots from the field while averaging seven rebounds per game. Brooklyn Liegel follows with a 10.5 points per game scoring average through two games. This will be the fourth all-time meeting with MSU-Moorhead on Saturday. The Huskies lead the series 2-1 after defeating the Dragons 59-48 last season in Houghton. The last time the two teams played in Moorhead, Tech prevailed 66-53 on November 16th, 2017.
