The dream - something like Penn State's Roar Zone.  Add permanent seating to the ceiling and add on to the North end of the Betty for more concourse space and locker room/office space or amenities - like hockey's hang out and kitchen area.. the teams that play in the Betty could share it.Image result for penn state hockey student section

I like it but nothing can be permanent.  The Betty is designed for four courts east to west.  Higher bleachers would have to be unless the entire thing was retractable.

Could knock out the north wall and expand somehow.  Have more suites or bars. The

Add a court to the North.  Plenty of room.

With all that ticket revenue the Ralph takes in every year, they should be able to afford it! :wink:

Penn St, Montana, Mt St, E Wash and Idaho are known to be on the schedule.

Really? I'm surprised that there would be that many Big Sky teams on the schedule.  I realize there is the scheduling agreement with the Big Sky, but I figured that it would be 1 home game and 1 road game with a Big Sky program(s) and that would be about it.  That would be great if there is more than just the 2 though.

Considering how many recruits that assistant from Australia brought in... zero.  If this guy as able to bring anyone over from Europe, that will be a step forward in regards to the recruiting efforts between the 2 international coaches we've had over the last few years.  Whether any of the player(s) he brings across the pond will be any good is another question entirely.   I'm hopeful, yet skeptical.

Welcome to North Dakota, Dani!

Welcome to North Dakota, Dani!

At least according to @SIOUXFAN97, he already did!  On his linkedin page, it says he worked on NCAA recruiting for Euro Elite Basketball.  Guessing he has quite a few connections over there.  Best chance we will have at finding under the radar big-guy talent, imo.

I know it doesn't really belong here but not sure where to post it.

Went to watch the Twin Cities Pro-Am basketball league last night.  Hooker is still really good.   Hit some big shots and was really the only one in either game that made his teammates better.  Same team s Mike Bruesewitz who played at Wisconsin and set him up a few times for open looks and a dunk.  They played off each other well.

Good basketball.  Royce White was probably the biggest name that played.  Crandall's team was off last night but he's in the league too.

He arrived from Serbia in 2016 and spent his Sr. year at Ralston Valley HS, Arvada, CO.  He came off the bench for a 14-11 team.  He averaged about 9 points and 5 rebounds.  He prepped last year at Williston-North Hampton in MA.  It appears he averaged 13-14 points for this team that finished 19-6.  His dad, Zeliko, was drafted in the second round of the 1994 NBA draft..  

That said, who knows if/how much he will contribute in his time at UND.  Hopefully, he will mature into a fine player.  Various sites list him from 6'7"-6'9" and 210-220 lbs
