The St. Cloud State men’s basketball team struggled on the road this past weekend, falling to MSU-Moorhead on Friday 77-64 and Northern State on Saturday 88-81.
One of the keys to the losses was the amount of fouls the Huskies committed. The Huskies committed 22 fouls leading to 26 free throw attempts for Moorhead on Friday and wound up with 23 fouls against NSU leading to 30 free throw attempts. St. Cloud State had free throw differentials of -9 against Moorhead and -12 against NSU.
Another key was the shooting differentials. The Huskies were outshot by 5.5% from the field against Moorhead and by 5.3% against NSU.
On the bright side, Gage Davis continued to shine recording 18 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists against the Dragons Friday before tallying 24 points despite being in foul trouble on Saturday.
The Huskies are now 4-6 on the season and 2-3 in conference play and will host rival University of Minnesota Duluth at 4pm on Saturday. The Huskies fell on the road to Duluth in the final seconds of the game earlier this season by a final of 68-66.

St. Cloud State Men and Women's Basketball Teams Travel To MSU-Moorhead and Northern State This Week
12/10/2015 - 4:00 AM
The St. Cloud State (4-4, 2-1 NSIC) men’s basketball team hits the road this week for a couple of in-conference matchups against MSU-Moorhead and Northern State University.
The Huskies are coming off a weekend sweep at home beating Bemidji State 80-62 and Minnesota-Crookston 97-68.
The road isn’t going to be easy on the Huskies as the Moorhead Dragons currently sit atop the NSIC North Division with a 3-0 mark in conference (they’re 10-1 overall). The Dragons hold an 8.5 scoring margin and have the 3rd best field goal defense in the league (.407).
Northern State is 5-4 coming into the weekend, but they’re 3-0 on their home floor and have won by margins of 35, 20, and 5 at the Wachs Arena this season.
Both opponents will be looking to run up the score on the Huskies this weekend as the Dragons aver 81.8 points per game and the Wolves put up 82.1 points per contest.
The St. Cloud State (3-3, 3-0 NSIC) women’s basketball team will also travel to Moorhead and Northern State this weekend.
The Lady Huskies also picked up a weekend sweep holding Bemidji State to 25% shooting in a 64-38 win before surviving a match against Minnesota-Crookston 70-67.
MSU-Moorhead currently tied with the Huskies for the top spot in the NSIC North Division with a 3-0 in conference record. The Dragons are scoring 76.5 points per game, but are also allowing over 68 points to opponents on a nightly basis. So an efficient offense will likely be the key to the Huskies game plan on Friday.
Northern State lost Rachel Krogman to graduation last offseason and, as a result, have struggled in the early portion of the conference schedule (1-2 NSIC). They’re still a formidable foe, though, with the 4th best scoring defense in the league (allowing 58.6 ppg) and the 4th best field goal defense in the league (.361).

It was a close game all the way through with neither team leading by more than six points at any time during the contest.

The Huskies held a 66-65 lead with 1:12 to go in the game before Pierre Newton tied things up with a free throw 15 seconds later
Neither team would score again until Newton banked in a layup with 9 seconds to go to clinch the win for the Bulldogs.
