The St. Cloud State men's basketball team took a business-like approach to their trip to Florida and were rewarded with a pair of wins. The Huskies defeated Florida Southern 91-89 on Friday night, then blew out St. Joseph's College (IN) 71-52 on Saturday.
The Huskies were on the verge of defeat on Friday night after Florida Southern took the lead on a tip-in off an inbounds pass gave the Mocs an 89-88 lead with under a half-second remaining on the clock.
SCSU junior guard Kevin Levandoski nailed a half-court shot as time expired to give the Huskies an improbable win over nationally-ranked Florida Southern.
Saturday's contest provided no such drama as the Huskies coasted to a 19-point victory over the overmatched Pumas.
SCSU's Theo Rothstein matched his career high with 21 points in the game Friday, then established a new career best with 23 on Saturday.
