Minnesota Survives

Minnesota's win over Air Force wasn't the prettiest, but they got the job done in the first round and will move on to face North Dakota today after defeating the Falcons 4-3.

Air Force needed to play pretty much perfect to win and have some breaks go their way, and they did for the first 50 minutes, but their luck ran out at the end. It was a valiant effort on their part.

Minnesota didn't seem pleased or satisfied with the way that they had to win, but in the NCAA tournament, survival is the most important thing.
