St. Anthony at Trinity Observations

Game 2 of the night takes the Twin Cities Hoops Insider and I to the Ergotron Gymnasium at the brand new Trinity facility in Eagan. As to the game itself, it was more about enjoying the facility and talking with the nice St. Anthony fans. The Huskies rolled to a 49-24 halftime lead using their run and jump pressure against a weaker Trinity team. Trinity stayed close for the 1st 8 minutes (16-11 down) but then a 18-4 Husky run put it away. Final score was 80-55 St. Anthony. Chris Mullin (Calvin Walker) with 20 points (16 in 1st half) for St. Anthony. He's even got the T-Shirt to go with the look like Mullin did. He got those 20 points with almost nothing run directly for him. Coach Eric Schutte of Concordia was in the building and this led to a funny moment in the 1st half where Husky coach Dave Bratland looked across the court at him and told his team to run Concordia.

Trinity opens play in the Friendship bracket of the MCAA tournament when they host Providence on Friday. Should be an interesting rematch as Providence's 1 win of the year was 55-44 at home over Trinity on January 18th.
