Facebook Twitter

12/17/2014 - 12:55 PM

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.

http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basketball-women/d2

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.

The St. Cloud State University Women’s basketball team put their undefeated streak on the line against MSU-Moorhead and #3 NSU this weekend. And they showed up to play both nights, beating MSU 79-62 on Friday and NSU 62-54 on Saturday.

Led by Chelsea Nooker (18) and Karissa LeCaptain (16) the Huskies lit up the scoreboard with a 52% shooting performance as a team on Friday. They scored 27 points off of 21 MSU turnovers (compared to 5 points off turnovers for MSU) and 31 points off the bench. They also started to knock down their free throws (83%) like their capable of doing.

MSU was led by senior Meghan Roehrich who finished 5 of 13 from the field for 15 points.

The big game of the weekend though, was the Huskies hosting the #3 team in America, the Northern State University Wolves. Coming into the game the Wolves were averaging over 46 rebounds per game as a team (about 10 more than SCSU).

The Huskies managed to keep the rebounds under control and finished the game with a 37-36 edge in that department. They were outshot from the field by 6% (40% NSU, 34% SCSU) but drilled 7 more threes than the Wolves to go along with 5 more free throw conversions which helped to keep them in the game.

The Huskies were led by Lexy Petermann (17) and Chelsea Nooker (11), but also got some big contributions from Kyli Van Klei off the bench. Van Klei finished with 10 points, 5 rebounds, and a block off the bench.

With the wins the Huskies improve to 8-0 on the season (5-0 NSIC) and will next be in action in Duluth against the Bulldogs on December 20th. Tipoff is scheduled for 2pm and the games will be live on the KVSC Sports Stream. Just go to KVSC.org/sports to find where to listen.

Huskies Steamroll To Record-Setting Win Over Crossroads College

Huskies Steamroll To Record-Setting Win Over Crossroads College

The St. Cloud State University Men’s Basketball team reached the century mark on the scoreboard for the first time since February 6th, 2010 when they beat the Beavers of Bemidji State 107-71. 1179 fans came to Halenbeck Hall tonight to watch the Huskies steamroll their way to a 102-48 victory over the Crossroads College Knights of Rochester, Minnesota.

The Huskies had 6 players score in double-figures led by Chuckie Smith who notched a career-high 17 points in the game. Freshmen Andy Foley and Jon Averkamp each set new seasons highs with 11 and 10 points respectively. Rounding out the players in double figures were Scottie Stone (12), James Fort (10) and Donnell Cegers (10).

As a team the Huskies scored 70 bench points! A couple of other season records set by the team tonight include: points in the paint (46), second chance points (34), fast break points (10), three-point field goals made (9), and three-point percentage (.391).

However it wasn’t just in the score column that the Huskies shined. They also set a new season-high in assists as a team with 19 and out-rebounded the Knights 58-26. On top of that they picked the Knights’ pockets 11 times and turned away 5 shot attempts.

All of these stats contributed to the seriously lopsided final score.

With the win the Huskies improve to 4-2 on the year and will next travel to face undefeated Bemidji State (5-0) on Friday and UM-Crookston on Saturday. They next return to Halenbeck Hall on Friday, December 12th against MSU-Moorhead at 8pm.

SCSU Splits with Top Ranked Gophers

SCSU Splits with Top Ranked Gophers

 The State of Hockey features a lot of great rivalries but this weekend may have featured the best of them all. St. Cloud State and Minnesota skated to a split this weekend with the home team winning both matchups. 

Friday featured the best crowd of the year at the National Hockey Center as there was not a seat to be had when the puck dropped at 7:37. It took alomst 15 minutes for the first goal to be scored but when Jonny Brodzinski delivered a perfect pass to Kalle Kossila the scoring opened up for the Huskies. The first period ended with a David Morley rebound goal to push the Huskies lead to 2-0 at the end of the first period and the Huskies would never look back. SCSU got goals from Jonny Brodzinski and Joey Benik to close out the 4-1 win over the top ranked Gophers. 

Saturday was a different story as Minnesota came out and played much better at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis. The first period featured the Gophers dominating SCSU in the shots department but the game was still scoreless after the first period. After both teams went back and forth in the game, overtime came and the Gophers took advantage by netting the game winning goal just a couple of minutes into overtime. 

The Huskies move to 3-3 on the young season and will play Minnesota-Duluth this weekend in a series at the National Hockey Center.

Volley-Fall

 Volley-FALL:

St. Cloud State Volleyball opened the season winning 3 of the 4 games at both the Rollins College Tournament and the NSIC Challenge. The 6-2 stretch included sweeps over Minot State (3-0) and the University of Minnesota-Crookston (3-0). The Huskies would then lose in their home opener against the University of Minnesota-Duluth before winning their 7th game of the season against the University of Sioux Falls on November 19th. Since this time, the Huskies have failed to win a single match and over the course of this 14 match losing streak, the Huskies have won only 5 sets (and haven’t forced a fifth set once). As if to illustrate how far the Huskies have plummeted over the course of the past month and a half, the last home stand featured losses to UM-Crookston (0-3), Minot State (0-3) and a University of Mary team that came into the match with a 3-18 record on the year (1-3).

Now why has the team fallen so far from where it began the season? There are many possible reasons, and perhaps no one right answer, but here are a few of the possibilities: Head Coach Michelle Blaeser has been put under investigation by the university for an, as of yet, unknown reason. St. Cloud State also plays in arguably the best conference in Division II Volleyball with perennial powerhouse opponents like 7-time National Champion Concordia University, the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Southwest Minnesota State University, Wayne State, and Augustana College (all of which have been ranked in the top 25 at some point this season). In addition to these reasons, the Huskies have experienced some key injuries over the course of the season. Most notably the injury to sophomore outside hitter Shannon Klink. This left the Huskies to floundering offensively as they tried to find a go-to attacker to assist senior outside hitter Kaitlin Doughty.

Now these aren’t the only factors that could have played a role in the losing streak, but they certainly haven’t helped matters. So how does the team prepare for the rest of the games this season? It certainly won’t be easy (as they will face Augustana, Wayne State, and Southwest Minnesota State University before the seasons end), but there may be some good news on that front. Shannon Klink did return to action on Tuesday against the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. Though she only played in one set and didn’t manage any notable stats, it is a good sign to see Klink returning to the lineup. If she can make a full recovery and return to her natural rotation next season it will certainly give the Huskies a lift offensively and defensively (Klink has averaged 2.5 kills/set and 2.3 digs/set this season). Another bright spot is freshman outside hitter Isabella Nelson. Nelson has been given the bulk of the responsibility of filling in for Shannon Klink, and as time has gone on you can see she is getting more comfortable on the court and playing better each match. Lastly, the team is only graduating two seniors at the end of this season. On the downside, both seniors play a key role on the team. Kaitlin Doughty leads the team in kills and Erin Ohlemann has done a masterful job as the setter all season (she has been ranked in the top 10 in the NSIC all year). Over the offseason the Huskies will have to address these losses in order to continue to progress toward contender ship in the NSIC.

One thing that needs to be improved is the defense. Coming into the weekend’s matchups against Augustana and #12 Wayne State, the Huskies are ranked 15th in the NSIC in opponents hitting percentage (.229), 14th in digs (14.6/set), and 14th in blocks (1.63/set). They will need to find replacements at the setter position and a consistent outside hitter to go along with Shannon Klink for next year. And finally, they need to regain the staffing stability that they have had over the past few years before the investigation of Coach Blaeser.

The Huskies will next be in action against Augustana College on Halloween night at 7pm in Halenbeck Hall and against #12 Wayne State College on November 1st at 4pm. The games will be on the KVSC Sports Stream on a tape-delayed basis next week.

Husky Baseball Adds Two Transfers

Husky Baseball Adds Two Transfers

Although the cold air is on it's way, St. Cloud State baseball is still striving to return to the top of the NSIC, and the two transfers that will start with the Huskies in 2015 may go a long way to making the Huskies a major threat in the conference. 

SCSU Baseball coach Pat Dolan reached all the way to the Big 10 conference to grab Beau Fandel. Fandel is a catcher who redshirted for the Cornhuskers in 2014 and is also a native of Forest Lake, MN. 

Coach Dolan was also able to reel in Logan Swann to suit up for the red and black of the Huskies next season. Swann played his 2014 campaign for North Dakota State and is a native of Redwood Falls, MN. 

Click here to listen to Coach Dolan talk to KVSC's Ted Leroux about the new transfers as well as Huskies in the Northwoods League and what has been happening in the offseason for Husky baseball.

Sipple was last with the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
