CSU-Pueblo faces familiar foe in second round of NCAA tournament


PUEBLO, Colo. — The CSU-Pueblo Thunderwolves meet a familiar foe in the second round of the NCAA tournament this Saturday.

After a round one shutout win over Augustana, the Pack travels to Minnesota State-Mankato. This marks the third straight year the Thunderwolves and Mavericks meet in the tournament. The Mavericks ended CSU-Pueblo’s season in the last two meetings.

“The last couple years, whenever Mankato got the ball rolling and scored some points, we’d start to lose our momentum and stayed down there,” defensive end Jackson Wibbles said. “This year’s been different, especially after the loss at Mines, we’ve come together better as a defense.”

Kickoff is scheduled for noon Saturday in Mankato, Minnesota.
