Preseason boot camp

Free Press higher ed reporter Robb Murray had this story in today's paper about the Mavericks' use of a Minnesota State ROTC program designed for team building and leadership training.

The ROTC offers it to many groups on campus, but the Mavericks were one of the first to try the full program. It included a day of paintball, a rappelling session and a leadership reaction course.

The team was using the experience, along with its preseason practices and workouts, to determine who will be this season's captains. With the season officially starting on Saturday with a first practice/exhibition game, we should find out who those players are very soon.
