Huskies still on the hunt
February 21, 2012 - Michael Bleach
Amazingly, despite failing to string together three wins since early December, the Michigan tech men’s basketball team is still in strong position to win the GLIAC North Division.
With an 11-6 conference record, the Huskies currently trail in the North by one game to both Ferris State (12-5) and Northwood (12-5).
Ferris State hosts No. 1 overall seed in the GLIAC Tournament Hillsdale (15-3) Wednesday and then travels to Grand Valley State (10-8) Saturday. Winning both of those games — while not at all impossible — would be quite an accomplishment for the North co-leader in a year where results have trended towards the middle. If Ferris State were to lose one of those games — and provided the Huskies beat Saginaw Valley State and Northwood this weekend* — then Tech would hold the tie breaker after defeating Ferris twice this season.
*Which I am in nooooooo way assuming. I am just saying “provided that...”
Against Northwood, the Huskies control their own destiny.
Tech defeated the Timberwolves at Northwood back in January 66-62. If MTU could repeat that performance, they would also hold the tiebreaker.
This season has been frustrating for the Huskies. Each time the team seems to find that next level or start to put a run together, they have stumbled.
All of that would be a forgotten footnote in a year’s time, however, if the Huskies were to win the North and capture the No. 2 seed in the GLIAC Tournament.
