Excellent! Dr. Clifford's favorite team goes to the NCAA tournament first. He would have been proud!

Congrats on making it to the big dance.

SDSU won one game in either their first or second visit and should have won two that same year, but were the victims of some terrible calls against Baylor at a game in Waco.

ESPN's Charlie Creme http://espn.go.com/ncw/bracketology has UND as a 14 seed against West Virginia and playing in Iowa City. USD is projected as a 15 seed and is matched up against Louisville and playing in Ames. Creme also has SDSU in the first 4 out. Not likely, but could end up with all 4 D1 programs in the Dakotas (3 womens & 1 mens) sending a team to the Dance

Thanks 'yotes.

Of course, we are hoping to send the women's AND men's team this year. We're crossing our fingers!

Forgot about that. Good luck to the UND men against Weber State.

No worries, 'yotes! It's all new territory for UND folks..

If I'm not mistaken, all four Dakota division I schools have earned at least one trip to the NCAA men's or women's basketball tournament within two years of being eligible. That's pretty impressive.

Thanks Yotes..hopefully UND can become the first ND team to win a game in the tournament. Also good luck to your team as well.

Has SDSU won any games in the dance?

Yes, they won a first round game and came close to winning a second game - they lost to Baylor in a close game at Baylor

College Sports Madness has North Dakota as a 15 seed opening against Baylor. USD as a 14 opening against Nebraska.

That seems pretty unlikely, having USD as a higher seed than UND. UND's RPI is presently 89, whereas USD is at 136.

Didn't UND beat USD in non-conference this year.

Looks like that same site now has UND as a 14 and playing Nebraska

ESPN still has us a 14 playing West Virginia in Iowa City.

Real time RPI has UND as a 13 playing North Carolina.

I saw that but immediately dismissed the bracket when they put undefeated UCONN as a 3 seed. I believe we will be a 14 with an outside shot at being a 13.

I wonder how high we might have gotten had we finished games @ UNI, @ Minnesota, @ Montana, and @ Sac State. We might have been in that 12-13 range for sure.

UND a #14...play #3 Texas A&M in College Station. Tough draw especially when you consider location to boot.
