Husky Women's basketball to face Sioux Falls in first-round of NSIC Tournament for 2nd straight seas
Chelsea Nooker looks to ignite the Husky defense on Wednesday

The St. Cloud State women’s basketball team (11-11 in NSIC) hosts the University of Sioux Falls (13-9 in NSIC) in the opening round of the NSIC tournament for the second year in a row. The only other time these teams met the Cougars won 71-48. It should be noted that the Huskies were without Lexy Petermann in that contest.

The key players for the Huskies will be Lexy Petermann and Chelsea Nooker. Petermann leads the team in scoring at 14.2 ppg while Nooker leads the team in steals (2.0) and blocks (0.7). The keys to the Huskies victory are pretty clear cut: they need to contain Cougars’ shooters (allow 44.4% shooting from the field as a team, 14th in NSIC), they need to convert on the turnovers they force (have 3rd best turnover margin in conference), and they need to slow down Taylor Varsho (17 points, 16 rebounds in last meeting with Huskies).

The Cougars need to continue to dominate the boards (best rebounding team in the NSIC), establish a presence inside the paint (3rd in conference in blocks), and they need to get off to a good start to quiet the Cloud Crazies. They are led in scoring, passing, and steals by Taylor Varsho (13.0 ppg, 3.9 apg, 1.9 spg). Sam Knect leads the team in rebounding, blocks, and field goal percentage (7.6 rpg, 2.0 bpg, 53% FG).

The game tips off on Wednesday at 6pm in Halenbeck Hall and can be heard live on your sports alternative 88.1 FM KVSC.
