Minnesota State has been on its Alaska trip since last Wednesday (Jan. 1) and, on Sunday, traveled from Fairbanks to Anchorage where they are spending the week preparing for this weekend's series against Alaska Anchorage.
Their opponent, the Seawolves, aren't sure when they're getting to town. They're stuck in the Twin Cities right how, having missed a connecting flight home after getting in late from Madison, Wis., on Sunday. This week's poor weather caused a delay out of Madison, and later flights out of the Twin Cities have been full.
While the UAA team continues to seek flights home in time to play the Mavericks, it will practice at the Richfield Arena, according to one report.
The Seawolves are coming off an impressive series split at Wisconsin, while the Mavericks garnered a split at Fairbanks last week.
By the way, at the time of this posting, it's 7 degrees in Mankato with a minus-5 wind chill and an expected low of minus-14. In Anchorage, it's 21 degrees with no wind chill and an expected high of 34.
UPDATE: On Tuesday evening, UAA issued a press release saying the team would be headed home on Thursday.
