Miners open four game road trip tonight against Sun Devils
TEMPE -- It’s been nine months since the Miners last stepped foot in Oceanside Arena for the Western Regional ACHA Tournament to faceoff against the Utah State Aggies. To say they have unfinished business in this building is an understatement, for more than one reason. Back with a similar roster and a hunger to win mindset, the Miners must first check off another item on that list -- the Arizona State Sun Devils.
