The St. Cloud State University Women’s basketball program fell to Minnesota Crookston 91-68 on Friday. It was their worst loss of the season and their first loss at Halenbeck Hall.

Lexy Petermann put up a team-high 14 points in the loss while Betsy MacDonald and Andrea Thomas each chipped in 12 of their own. As a team the Huskies shot 37.5% from the field and 25% from beyond the three-point line.

However the big story of the evening was the Golden Eagles’ shooting percentage. As a team Crookston shot 53% from the field and from downtown. They also finished 19-23 from the charity stripe (83%). Alexa Thielman led the team in scoring with 22.

On Saturday, the Huskies were riding a 3 game losing streak as they took the floor against the Bemidji State Beavers. In the first half it looked as if the Huskies would again falter at home as they fell behind 30-21 heading into the break.

BSU’s Sierra Senske caught fire in the first half and scored 10 points on 5-7 shooting. In the second half the Huskies, led by the revitalized defense of Karissa LeCaptain, shackled Senske. She did finish with 17 points in the game, but only shot 2-7 from the field in the final frame.

The Husky offense (which shot a dreadful 25% from the field in the first period) came alive mid-way through the second half. They drained 16 of 30 shots including 4 three-pointers, leading them to a 40-25 second half rally and a 61-55 victory.

The Huskies are now 10-4 (6-4 NSIC) and host Augustana College (Friday 6pm) and Wayne State College (Saturday 4pm) at Halenbeck Hall next weekend. You can hear Friday’s game on your sports alternative KVSC 88.1 FM & HD, St. Cloud.
