The Saint Mary’s Huskies started their season with five straight wins, including one the previous night over the Varsity Reds.

Playing in front of five-time NBA champ Ron Harper, Jeff Speedy’s squad took a five point lead into half-time.

The Huskies surged late in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t get past the stingy Varsity Reds, who held on for a 54-51 victory.

“We held them to 51 points,” said senior Rachel Cleary. “I don’t think that’s something that many teams do.”
