High Point is a first year program, but they announced almost a year before Michigan and have two recruiting classes on campus as opposed to UM's one (Tim at greatlaxstate.com has a good write up, in case you're interested). In some ways that gives them a developmental edge on us, but this is still the one game this year that we should be favored. Need to rebound offensively from the Army game. Seemed to take big leaps forward in faceoffs and ground balls, but couldn't handle Army's pressure style and turned the ball over a lot for the first time this year. That contributed to the offensive woes on Saturday, along with a hot goalie and some poor shooting. If we can limit turnovers and shoot well, this is probably a win.
Still good to see all of the freshmen getting so much experience. This should pay off in the coming years.
