SCSU Basketball Posts Pair Of Weekend Sweeps
The St. Cloud State men's basketball team swept Minot State in their first home series of the season, while the women's team took care of business in a non-conference matchup with U-Mary.
The men's team earned a 80-78 win on Saturday thanks to a last-second shot by Ryan Bagley. SCSU then blew out the Beavers on Sunday thanks to a big game from Bagley, who notched 21 points on 6-6 shooting from the floor.
The Huskies came out of the gates hot on Sunday, jumping out to an early 11-2 lead and never looking back. SCSU led by as many as 30 points in the second half before a semi-comeback by the Beavers ran out of time.
Sophomore guard Anthony Roberts leads the Huskies with an average output of 17.8 points per game.
The women's team had a change in plans due to COVID-19 protocols at Minot State, traveling instead to Bismarck, North Dakota for a pair of non-conference games against U-Mary.
The Huskies took both games of that series to improve to 4-2 on the season. SCSU is led by the duo of Brehna Evans and Tori Wortz, who have combined to average 31 points per game.
