SWSiouxMN Posted January 27, 2016 Share Posted January 27, 2016 After an impressive road sweep, UND will again return to the road to take on their travel partner and former NCC rival UNC. Since it is travel partner week, this is the only game these two team have this week. This is an important game for both to close out the 1st half of the season. A UND win gives them a chance to gain some separation from the middle of the pack teams in the Big Sky and stay two back of the leaders. It would also give UND a steller 4-1 road record on the year. UNC holding serve at home would mean after a dismal 1-4 start to conference play, the Bears will find themselves back in the thick for that 1st round bye for the conference tourney. Since joining the Big Sky, UND is 2-4 all time against the Bears, including a 1-2 record in Greely. UND will have to contain a potent Bear offense to get out of Greely with the W. Very guard oriented. Early Prediction: UND has been playing well since the 2nd half of the Weber game. I think they are playing with a lot of confidence coming off that road sweep, but so is UNC. In the end, UNDs perimeter D will hold UNC in check just enough to come out of Greely with their 6th Big Sky win 77-70 UND Other Games (I will list all the games for the week on this thread) Thurs 1/28 SAC @ IDAHO PSU @ EWU NAU @ Weber SUU @ ISU Sat 1/30 PSU @ IDAHO SAC @ EWU SUU @ WEBER NAU @ ISU MONT @ MSU Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
