How about the women's team?

The Minnesota State women's team open the 2013-14 season Friday evening at Mankato's All Seasons Arena with the first of two games against seventh-ranked Mercyhurst. Friday's game is at 6 p.m., and Saturday's game is at 1 p.m. As part of MSU's Homecoming festivities, Saturday's game features free admission.

The Mavericks are beginning their fifth season under coach Eric Means. This year's senior class was his first full recruiting class (11 players at the time; there are 8 from that group remaining). That group includes Kari Lundberg, who is in her second season as captain. Read more about her and a team preview here.

As I did earlier with the MSU men's team, I broke down the Mavericks' roster. It features players from a variety of places, including three countries and nine states/provinces.
