SWSiouxMN Posted February 3, 2016 Share Posted February 3, 2016 After dropping a close one last week, UND finally gets back on the home court to take on ISU, who is rolling into town on a 4 game winning streak. UND has never lost to ISU in Big Sky play, going 6-0 and including a 84-76 victory in Poky this year. However, this will be a stiffer test with how Telfair has been playing lately and he drop 37 points in the first meeting. Luzcando is also coming off a big performance (30 points) against NAU. UND will enter its toughest stretch of the season. Home against ISU, then Weber. Then a trip to EWU and Idaho on the docket. Then a home docket with UNC. To spell it out, UND has a crack at the four teams that currently sit at the same position as UND. UND has a crack to win the tiebreakers with ISU and EWU with victories. It will be a tall order for UND to get all 5, no question about it. Could they... you bet! Could they lose them all... yes. Will UND still be in the running for the top 4 seed when it is all said and done? We start answering that question tomorrow night Other Games: Weber (7-1) @ UNC (5-4) Mont (8-1) @ Sac (2-6) MSU (4-5) @ PSU (3-5) EWU (5-4) @ NAU (1-8) Idaho (5-4) @ SUU (2-7) The Call: Bassy's Bro and the Chilean kid will keep ISU competitive, but UND will want to defend the home court, and I look for Avants, Drick, and Shanks to have decent to big games in the post to come away with a 10 point win UND 81-71 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
