Michigan Tech men’s basketball preview

HOUGHTON – If there’s a team that knows all about postseason success, it’s the men’s basketball team at Michigan Tech. The Huskies made it all the way to the Sweet 16 in last year’s NCAA Tournament.

Tech was picked by the media to win the GLIAC North Division. The Huskies return three starters, including the pre–season player of the year,  junior guard Ben Stelzer.

“I don’t think that we can say that we have to be better than last year’s team,” said Huskies head coach Kevin Luke. “I think it has to be process and our guys have to believe we can do it, execute it and want to do the little things on their own. In the first week of practice, they certainly want that challenge to become better and that’s the biggest key right now. They’re willing to put the time in. If they’re willing to do it and have the kind of chemistry we had last year, I think that kind of takes care of itself.”

All of the Huskies non–conference games are on the road this season. Techs first game is Wednesday, Nov. 12 at home against Finlandia.
