Ohio (16-4-0) is coming off their third consecutive title at the Wheeling Mountaineer Invitational in Wheeling, West Virginia. The 'Cats outscored West Chester and West Virginia 13-2 in the effort.
Coach Dan Morris sits down in the midst of the shortest week of preparation for Ohio this season. After playing their last contest on Sunday, the 'Cats depart today for the state of Arizona.
Ohio has another set of multiple opponents in front of them, beginning with the #20 Wildcats of Arizona and Thursday night.
Friday and Saturday spells fourth-ranked Arizona State, a team that Morris has never faced in his time at Ohio University. He gives his scouting report on both clubs and his thoughts on returning to Arizona for the first time in a decade.
The coach also talks about the continued progression of freshman goaltender Brendan Madden. The walk-on notched his first career shutout in the 5-0 decisive victory over West Virginia, improving his overall record to 4-0-0.
