Women's Basketball nationally ranked for first time since Jan. 2, 2007; ranked #21
The St. Cloud State Women's Basketball Team 2014-15

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.

Huskies win out at home; remain undefeated
Kyli Van Klei scored 10 points off the bench against NSU to help the Huskies upset the #3 Wolves on Saturday

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 Fall Twice At Home
Jordan Poydras scored a season-high 31 points (all in the second half) against MSU-Moorhead. This is currently the most scored in a game by any Husky player this season.

The St. Cloud State University Men’s Basketball team fell in twice at Halenbeck Hall this past weekend. They lost on Friday to the 19th ranked MSU-Moorhead Dragons 98-85, and came up short on Saturday against NSU 91-77.

Against MSU-Moorhead the Huskies shot 52% from the field and 44% from beyond the arc. They held Moorhead to 48% shooting from the field but once again sent an opponent to the line too often. Moorhead ended the night 32 of 39 from the charity stripe compared to the Huskies’ 17 of 26 mark at the line.

Jordan Poydras would lead the team with a season high 31 points (all of which came in the second half) to go along with his team-high three steals.

On Saturday, the Huskies again struggled when it came to the number of free throws they allowed to their opponents. NSU finished 30 of 35 from the line on the night while the Huskies hit 21 of 27 shots at the line.

However, free throws weren’t the only major factor in this game. NSU shot 58% from the field and 45% from downtown. On top of that, they out-rebounded St. Cloud State 32-26 in the game while holding the Huskies to a mere 42% clip from the field.

Up next for the Huskies is the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs on Saturday December, 20th at the Romano Gymnasium. The Huskies are 53-30 all-time against UMD and beat them at Halenbeck Hall earlier this season 69-66. You can hear the game live on the KVSC Sports Stream. Just go to kvsc.org/sports to find where to listen. Tipoff is scheduled for 4pm.

Huskies End Season in Shootout Win over Marauders

Following a record breaking season for St. Cloud State football last season, this year's season finale was less impactful but that doesn't mean it wasn't exciting. The Huskies were able to top the University of Mary Marauders 55-44 in an offensive battle at Husky Stadium on Saturday. After the Huskies jumped out to an early 16-0 lead, the Marauders came back but never got within two touchdowns as SCSU always had a response for U-Mary. Both teams combined for over 1000 offensive yards and the quarterbacks had a combined 6 touchdowns in this game. St. Cloud State finished 6-5 on the season.
