No. 2 Men's Hockey Sweeps Colorado College
Easton Brodzinski Ended the Weekend with 4 Points (2G, 2A)

The SCSU men's hockey team swept the Colorado College Tigers this past weekend.

On Friday the Huskies had multiple players net their first goal of the season en route to their 6-1 victory. Will Borgen and Blake Lizotte both scored their first goal of the season.

Saturday saw Jeff Smith make his first back to back starts in goal for SCSU this year as well as the Huskies continue to thrive offensively. Captain Judd Peterson tallied his first goal on the year after a long drought on an empty net opportunity and Luke Jaycox joined in on the scoring party as well getting his first career goal off a shot from the blue line. SCSU would go on to secure the sweep over CC with a 5-1 win.

The Huskies improve to 9-2-0 on the year and have next weekend off for Thanksgiving break.

SCSU Men's Basketball Splits in Husky Hoopster Classic

SCSU Men's Basketball Splits in Husky Hoopster Classic

 The St. Cloud State Men's Basketball team continued to struggle to find their identity without Gage Davis, going 1-1 in the 2017 Husky Hoopster Classic.

The Huskies opened their 2017-18 home season with a 67-51 victory over Mayville State on Friday. Junior Forward Sean Smith posted career highs in points and rebounds, going 19/15 for his first career double-double. Senior Jon Averkamp continued his early season success, finishing with 26 points and 10 rebounds. The SCSU defense was active all night, forcing 24 Comet turnovers on 13 steals, resulting in 18 Huskies points off turnovers. Eric Staebler led Mayville State with 10 points and 13 rebounds.

In the 2017 edition of the Huskies/Johnnies rivalry, #20 Saint John's (DIII) came home as the victor in a 73-67 thriller. The Johnnies shot a blazing hot 64% from the floor in the second half, with Tyler Weiss (18 points/9 rebounds), Patrick Strom (16 points/4-5 3PFG), and Jubie Alade (12 points/5-9 shooting) each scoring 10 points in the closing period. SCSU failed to find any consistent form of offense in the game, shooting just under 40% from the floor. Averkamp and Brindley Theisen led the Huskies with 12 points each.

SCSU will continue to be without Davis for at least two more weeks, and their offense (42% shooting, 26% from three) needs to find a spark in their next three games against NSIC foes MSU-Mankato, Crookston, and Bemidji State.

The Huskies, now 2-2 on the season, travel to Mankato this Saturday at 4:00 p.m. in a nonconference affair. The game will be heard on KVSC 88.1 FM, with Husky Den Pregame beginning at 3:30 p.m.

SCSU Volleyball Closes Promising Season With Back-to-Back Losses

SCSU Volleyball Closes Promising Season With Back-to-Back Losses
Second Team All-NSIC Libero Clara Krenz

 St. Cloud State Volleyball ended the 2016 season with just 8 victories, 21 losses, and a 3-17 conference record.

2017 served as a looking glass into the exciting future of Huskies Volleyball, as the program doubled their win total. The Huskies finished the season at 16-14, the second time in 19 years that SCSU closed with a record better than .500 and the first time they hit that mark since the 19-win 2004 season. The squad hung their hats on defense, as their hitting percentage defense improved by a whopping 55 points, from .253 to .198. Sophomore Libero Clara Krenz led the NSIC in digs per det with a mark of 5.92, placing her top-20 in the Nation. Krenz was a Second-Team All-NSIC selection, the program's first All-Conference pick since Brianne Stamer's 2015 Second-Team season. The Huskies did not lose a single conference game against an opponent that hadn't received NCAA Top-25 votes, and they achieved the first ranked win in the Braegelmann era with a home sweep of #18 Wayne State College on September 23rd.

The team graduates three seniors in Outside Hitter Nicole Miller, Rightside Becca Gruber, and Setter Kayla Crane. Crane and Miller were instrumental in the defensive turnaround, placing second and fourth on the squad in digs per set respectively. Gruber served as the primary attacker for the Huskies, leading the team in kills, attack attempts, and hitting percentage. St. Cloud State will certainly miss the contributions of the three standouts as they move forward into 2018.

Looking ahead to 2018, the Huskies likely will be a serious contender for an NSIC Tournament berth, returning great depth to their defense. Krenz will enter her Junior season looking to repeat an outstanding 2017 season, while Taylor Olstad and Lindsay Brunssen will help solidify the back row in their second seasons. Middle Hitter pair Micah Nier and Marah Mulso each hit better than .200 for SCSU, and the two will likely anchor the middle for the team. At the pins, the team will rely on Senior-To-Be Krista Kuglin and second-year Abby Templin as hitters with experience. Maddy Torve likely will improve on a promising freshman season at the Setter spot, as the team may make the move to a 5-1 lineup.

The Huskies closed 2017 with two road sweeps by #22 Wayne State and #18 Augustana. The program announced their early 2018 signees here.

SCSU Assistant Men's Basketball Coach Accepts Position with NBA Affiliate

SCSU Assistant Men's Basketball Coach Accepts Position with NBA Affiliate
Mahmoud Abdelfattah, Rio Grande Valley Vipers Assistant Coach

When the NBA came calling, St. Cloud State Assistant Men's Basketball Coach Mahmoud Abdelfattah was quick to answer.

Abdelfattah has accepted a Player Development/Assistant Coach position with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the G-League Affiliate of the NBA's Houston Rockets.

The Rio Grande Valley Vipers play their home games in Hidalgo, Texas, and have been affiliated with the Rockets from the start of the 2009-10 season. The team went 32-18 in 2016-17 and lost the 2017 Finals in three games to the Raptors 905.

"This is a great opportunity for me to learn and grow, not only as a coach, but also as an individual. I'm looking forward to working with the RGV Vipers!" Abdelfattah said.

Abdelfattah, known endearingly to many as "Coach A", has long been a staple of Men's Basketball at Halenbeck Hall. He played from 2006 to 2008 at Wilbur Wright College, and was named the Region MVP and a Second Team All-American in 2008. Abdelfattah then transferred to St. Cloud State, playing his final two years in the Huskies backcourt. His senior season saw the Huskies make an NCAA DII Elite Eight appearance. He began his coaching career as a student assistant coach during the 2010-11 season, followed by an assistant coaching stint with Perspective Charter School. Coach A returned to SCSU as an assistant coach in 2013-14. He has spent the past four seasons on the Huskies coaching staff, with the team going 70-50 over the 120 game span. One of his primary responsibilities was on the recruiting field, where he helped SCSU land Illinois prep stars Gage Davis and Mark Hall.

"I'm thankful for my time at SCSU, and wouldn't change a thing. I've learned a lot from the coaching staff, players, and everyone involved in the SCSU Athletic Department. They allowed me to be myself." Abdelfattah said.

SCSU Head Coach Matt Reimer spoke very highly of Abdelfattah’s time with the Huskies.

"I'm so excited for him, he's going to do great things. One day we'll say 'Hey, we knew him' when he's coaching in the NBA." said Reimer.

Abdelfattah was sure to thank two off-court influences from his time at St. Cloud State.

“I want to thank Carley Jeffery for being a great friend and office-mate. She’s taught me a lot during our time together. I also want to thank Dawn Schenk for always being there for me. There aren't enough words to explain how grateful I am for the support she’s given me over the last decade. Once a Husky, always a Husky!”
