The SCSU Husky baseball team is surging this season, putting up a 21-2 record through April 8. The team is currently on a 14-game winning streak with sweeps over University of Sioux Falls, Minot State University, and University of Minnesota Crookston.
The Huskies are 10-0 in the NSIC, which is ranked at the top in the conference. SCSU is ranked fourth in NCBWA poll and fifth in the National DII Baseball News Poll.
Part of the reason for such great success is their pitching. The Huskies currently lead the NCAA DII ranks with a 1.40 ERA. Scott Lieser leads the team with 7 wins followed by Kyle Fischer’s 6 wins.
A disappointing ending to the season would only be putting it mildly for the SCSU Huskies.
A disappointing ending to a pair of great collegiate careers would help sum it up.
However, the end to SCSU’s season did write school history.
The Quinnipiac Bobcats scored quickly, didn’t look back from there and cruised past the Huskies 4-1 in the second Frozen Four semifinal and into the championship game against ECAC conference rival Yale.
Do you not know a single thing about the Frozen Four game happening Thursday, but you feel pressured to at least have a few talking points?
Well, here’s a quick guide going into tomorrow’s game, including each team’s main players. So when your boyfriend is talking about how much he dislikes that Peca guy, you will be able to say, “Oh yeah, I hate Peca. How did that bum finish with 30 points this season?”
As the Atwood Ballroom continued to fill, the Husky men’s hockey team took the stage before heading to the airport and their eventual destination — Pittsburgh and the Frozen Four.
The Husky Sports Band and the Cheer Team set the tone for the crowd, which was buzzing with anticipation for a moment never before seen at SCSU. Both the band and the Cheer Team will accompany the hockey team to their first ever Frozen Four appearance.
I’ve examined many sports betting sites during the day. Mostly because I have a gambling problem. And partly because I wanted to see whether the Huskies were favored during Thursday’s Frozen Four match-up against Quinnipiac.
My searches wound up unsuccessful and the only response came from someone on Twitter who told me that SCSU was +130, meaning that if you bet $10, you would win $13. In other words, if this line were to be true (and I have no idea where this tweeter got this from), the Huskies are not expected to win.
