Men’s Hockey Stayin’ Alive

After one of the toughest losses of the season Thursday night, the Spartans bounced back with a dominant and convincing 4-2 win to earn a split at Minnesota and keep their hopes for a bye in the Big Ten Tournament alive.

“Dog Days” for Men’s Tennis

Big goals from last weekend turned into question marks, as the Spartans had a rude awakening on Saturday against in-state rival, Western Michigan.

“It was a perfect storm of events that just didn’t go our way,” explained senior tennis player Harry Jadun. “They’re a tough team and those guys came to play.”
