The Valley City State University Vikings shot nearly 48% from the field but couldn't overcome the St. Cloud State University defensive pressure as they dropped an exhibition game to the visiting NCAA Division II opponent by a 70-45 score.
The Vikings shot 18-38 (47.4%) from the field in the game but were 0-9 from the three point line and the Husky defensive pressure forced 28 turnovers as St Cloud State ran away with the victory.
The Huskies only managed to shoot 36.4% in the game but because of the turnovers forced, managed to control the game on the offensive end and total almost thirty more shots on goal than the home Vikings.
Brittany Lehner was the lone Viking in double figures, scoring ten points on four of seven shooting from the floor. Alyssa Hummel led the Vikings in rebounding, hauling in six caroms in the game.
The game, labeled as an exhibition for Valley City State, does not count on the overall record for the Vikings as they remain 2-1 on the season.
St. Cloud State was the third straight NCAA Division II and Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) opponent the Vikings have played.
Dickinson State University, formerly of the Dakota Athletic Conference (DAC) and new member of the Frontier Conference will come to the W. E. Osmon Fieldhouse on Saturday to renew an old DAC rivalry. Game time is set for 2:00 pm.
