HOUGHTON — The Huskies should feel right at home tomorrow afternoon against Grand Valley State, because the Huskies will be playing at home, inside the comfy confines of the SDC.
Finishing the conference schedule as the top team in the GLIAC has already paid dividends for the Huskies. Michigan Tech already owns a pair on wins against the Lakers this season. A third ‘w’ would put the black and gold in the GLIAC Tournament title game Sunday afternoon.
“We’re extremely excited- what an honor,” said Huskies head coach Kim Cameron. “Everything that you work for this entire year and you earn the opportunity for everyone to come to your place, it’s unbelievable. It’s been a goal of ours and I’m just extremely proud of them. We understand how hard it is to be able to do it. We had to beat a lot of really good teams in order to have this honor and it’s our job now to protect our home floor. Hopefully we’re able to do that.”
“It’s an awesome accomplishment, we’re all really excited to have it,” said Huskies guard Brenna Heise about the GLIAC Tournament being in Houghton. “We’re not satisfied. We want to cut the nets down on our home court. We’re ready to keep going.”
This is the ninth time in the 25 year history of the tournament that the SDC will be the home of the GLIAC Semifinals and Final. Michigan Tech is 20-5 all time in home games during the GLIAC Tournament. The Huskies and Lakers have tip–off set for 12pm tomorrow. Walsh and Ashland will then play at 2:30pm. The GLIAC Tournament Championship game is set for Sunday at 2pm.
