But in order to clinch a playoff spot and hold off Lake Superior State, who's making moves after a big weekend against fourth place Bemidji State, they'll have to bring their best effort at home against No. 5 Minnesota State this weekend.  

The first of a two-game series between the two teams begins on Friday night at 7:07 p.m. at the Von Braun Center.
