Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- When the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) men's and women's basketball teams host St. Cloud State on Saturday afternoon, it will provide a chance for both to avenge a loss to the Huskies earlier this season.

"They're a tough team, and we haven't beat them in our years here," UMD junior guard Jordan Reetz said. "It was kind of a wake-up call the first time we played them. They came and smacked us up a bit, so hopefully we can play them tough."

"We're hungry for that win. They're our biggest rival, and they're a very good team," Bulldogs junior guard Alyssa Kerkhoff said, "but at the same time I feel if we execute and play good defense, we're going to get that victory."

The women's game is scheduled to start at 2:00 p.m. on Dec. 21 at Romano Gymnasium with the men's game to follow at 4:00 p.m., with both set to be broadcast live on the My 9 Sports Network.
