    Woodside is 1A. But is Lawrence Alexander approaching 1B? Or 1A-minus?

    I have a story addressing this issue going in Thursday’s newspaper, but one of the factors that has helped the Bison men to a 13-7 record despite not having a very deep roster is an adjustment in how head coach Dave Richman is handling the practice schedule. He’s not beating them up....

  • Bracketology 101

    It’s a little more than 24 hours from the Selection Sunday NCAA tournament show and all indications point to NDSU being a No. 12 seed. It helped that Tulsa defeated Louisiana Tech in the Conference USA title game, for instance, because Tech was considered ahead of NDSU in the projections. As to...

  • An impressive defeat, if that makes sense

    The season is over for the NDSU women’s hoop team and it’s time to look for a new coach – but not without a couple comments from Saturday’s first round loss to IUPUI. It actually was a pretty impressive defeat, if that makes sense. The Bison were down 18 at halftime (it...

  • The summer when Andre put some teeth into Marshall’s game

    This weekend is probably the last home game for a crew of seniors on the NDSU men’s basketball team. It’s possible if the Bison lose in the Summit tourney they could host an N.I.T. game but that’s a scenario nobody on the team really cares to think about. One of those seniors...

  • 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...
