MEMPHIS, Tenn. - For the second time in as many years, the road to the Southern Athletic Association Championship will go through Rhodes College, but the Tigers will look for history to repeat itself in the 2018 season.
NOTHING NEW HERE: Since Sewanee became a founding member of the SAA in 2012-13, the Tigers have made the Tournament final in each of first six seasons. Sewanee is 4-1 all-time in these types of games.
FOUR-PEAT?: The Tigers are seeking its fourth straight SAA Tournament Championship, winning the final in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Overall, Sewanee has won four SAA Championships and have earned five NCAA Tournament appearances.
BURNIN' UP THE NET: Henry Burns has stepped up for the Tigers offense in the postseason. After recording back-to-back hat tricks in the regular season, the Libertyville, Ill. native has scored 10 of Sewanee's 25 goals in the SAA Tournament, with a 59 percent shooting percentage.
WINNING THE FACEOFF: Despite Sewanee's defeat to Rhodes earlier in the month, Ryan Stubits won 13 of the Tigers' 14 faceoffs in the match against the Lynx on April 6. The All-SAA Second Team member won 196 faceoffs this season, and he has won 34-of-44 faceoffs in the postseason.
