#15 UND (22-9) vs #2 Arizona (30-4) 3/16 8:50 NCAA 1st Round

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the attendance updates. I didn't think about the fact that big 10 and big 12 schools would have a venue big enough to surpass 16k.

Pretty good results last night for Hooker and Crandall considering this:

59. North Dakota: If UND and its scintillating guard Quinton Hooker weren’t playing Arizona, a team with a pack-line defense meant to contain a guard with Hooker’s skill set, this could have been an upset.

The team got the same compliment from a NDSU fan I work with who is one of the larger team makers.  Said he didn't realize how athletic they were and there was a lot of teams in the tournament they could have beaten.  It hurt him to say that.

An educated guess: most NDSU fans didn't see UND play this year.  Some saw them play in Fargo once.  Probably same ones watched the game at UND.  

But they still told everyone (prior to NCAA Tourney) how UND sucked, from a bad conference, will not win a game in the Summit, and so forth.
