Suprise, surprise. We got snow in Minnesota in December.
But the weather did not prevent the St. Catherine women’s basketball team from making it to Claire Lynch Hall where the Wildcats (1-2) are set to face St. Benedict (3-0) in the MIAC women’s basketball opener for both teams.
Blazers coach Mike Durbin has 597 career victories and counting. Both teams have not played in a bit. St. Benedict has been off since beating Wisconsin-River Falls 59-40 on Nov. 23.
St. Catherine has been off since beating Crown 76-50 on Nov. 21.
The Wildcats and second-year head coach Sean Pinkerton have a roster with 10 freshmen and two transfers after a two-win season a year ago.
I’ll have updates here at halftime and afterward. And you can follow along for more current updates on Twitter at @rajko1973.
