The St. Cloud State Women’s basketball team broke into the USA Today Sports Division II Top 25 women’s basketball coaches’ poll on December 16th. After going 8-0 (5-0 NSIC) out of the chute, the Huskies are ranked #21 in the country. They received 146 votes in the latest poll which can be viewed in its entirety from the link below.

The last time the Huskies were ranked was January 2nd, 2007 when they came in at #22.

When asked about the rankings women’s basketball head coach Lori Fish said, “Polls and rankings are nice, but talk to me in February because that’s when it means something. Really the Regional rankings are the big deal because that’s what helps you get into the national tournament. As far as the rankings right now, it’s nice because it recognizes that our players are working really hard and doing well.”

The start has also given the Huskies recognition in the Central Region Media Poll. Until this week, the Huskies had been unranked, after the upset victory over Northern State, they’re now ranked 8th with 6 points.

The last time that the Huskies began the season 8-0 was the 2005-06 season, in which they jumped out to a 17-0 start, finished 29-5, and went all the way to the NCAA Elite Eight semifinals.

This weekend the Huskies are headed to the Romano Gymnasium in Duluth to take on the Bulldogs for the second time this season. The last time the squads met was November 29th at Halenbeck Hall. The Huskies won 81-67.

They were led in scoring by Karissa LeCaptain (20), Carley Jeffrey (14), Lexy Petermann (14), and Betsy MacDonald (13).

Lexy Petermann and Nichole Wittman each grabbed 10 rebounds for the Huskies to help them gain a 42-40 edge in that department. They finished with 21 second chance points while forcing 21 turnovers that turned into 19 points.

Leading the way for the Bulldogs in scoring was Danielle Flood. She finished 8 of 17 from the field and 5 of 6 from the free throw line for 22 points.

The game will tipoff at 2pm on Saturday and can be heard live on your sports alternative KVSC; 88.1 FM & HD St. Cloud. Daniel Papp will be doing play-by-play.
