12/01/2009 - 12:00 PM
Matt Schneck's straight fourth double-double wasn't enough for the Huskey Men's Basketball team as they suffered their first defeat on the young season this last weekend. After a 66-54 win over the University of Mary in the first game of the Holiday Hoopsfest the Huskies feel 89-80 to Augustana. Schneck scored 21 and Taylor Witt added 24 but it was not enough as the Vikings scored their last 15 points from the line to improve their record to 5-0. The Huskies who have been ranked in the top 10 in the nation throughout the first part of the year fall to 3-1.
St.Cloud will begin the conference season this Friday against rival Winona State and then continue the NSIC schedule on Saturday versus Upper Iowa. The Huskies beat the Warriors in all three meetings last year including a first round victory in the NSIC Tournament. St.Cloud was ranked 9th in last week's national poll while Winona checked in at 14th. Games are slated to start at 8pm on Friday and 6pm on Saturday with KVSC providing coverage this Friday for both the Men's and Women's games against Winona.
