  • Bison hoops: TV progress is there, albeit slow, but a new BSA wouldn’t hurt, either

    NDSU will get a piece of the national stage Friday night when the Bison play at Akron on ESPN2 as part of the ESPN BracketBuster series. It’s the last year of the cross-country mid-major matchups, which is unfortunate since such TV appearances are generally rare for mid-majors. The fact teams from the...

  • Countdown to Week 1

    This is my last Saturday off until December I’m thinking, but wanted to get a couple things out; first an update on Billy Turner, sources tell WDAY 6 Sports, he’s going to have surgery on his injured thumb this week, but still intends to play next Saturday, we’ll hear officially from Craig...

  • Brett VandenBergh

    The 6-foot-5 guard gave his verbal commitment to the Bison on Tuesday night. The abbreviated version of the story is here. Other stuff with the verbal: Ritchie Davis, VandenBergh’s AAU coach with the Wisconsin Playground Warriors, praised NDSU’s coaching staff saying “they were relentless.” He said head coach Saul Phillips and assistants...

  • Bison men: in review

    North Dakota State’s men’s basketball season ended at 14-15 Saturday night in the Summit League tournament, the second straight year the Bison went down to Oral Roberts in the first round. More was expected of this team, especially after November and December when it had quality wins over the likes of Cal State-Santa...

  • Goofy things happen in basketball

    This NDSU over SDSU men’s basketball nine-game winning streak, we’ve been told, is just a media thing and the teams don’t care much about it. That may be true, so let’s talk about it. Back when these teams were considering a Division I transition, it’s possible that you could see a nine-game winning streak...

  • Woody, Andre, Winks, Nelson …. and maybe Tveidt

    Through the technology of Skype, NDSU forward Michael Tveidt has been in regular contact with Ben Woodside, Mike Nelson, Brett Winkelman and Andre Smith. They are all former Bison players now playing professionally throughout the world — and they are footsteps Tveidt may follow once his NDSU career is done. Winkelman is...

  • The tiebreaker breakdown

    The Bison host South Dakota State Friday in men’s basketball and NDSU finds itself in trying to avoid the eighth seed with Southern Utah. NDSU is 7-10 and SUU, which hosts Oakland and IPFW this weekend, is 6-10. If the two end in a tie, here are the first two tiebreaking criteria:...

  • Three things

    The North Dakota State men play at Oakland tonight and that’s really what this year’s Summit League is going to come down to: can anybody beat the Grizzlies in the tournament? NDSU gave its fans a possible recipe last month when the Bison took the Grizzlies to the final minutes. Three things...

  • Right now, it’s just not happening

    The 84-80 defeat to IPFW at the BSA tonight was what you would call a bad loss. The Bison dumped an 18-point lead in the first half (what is it about 18-point leads at the BSA, the Bison women did the same el foldo against Oral Roberts last week) and as the game went...

  • NDSU men in Summit: where do they belong?

    The Bison men are tied for sixth in the Summit League basketball standings, meaning they are in the lower tier of the league. If it was ever team for this team to make some sort of statement that it belongs in the higher group, then this is it. It hosts IPFW Thursday...
