Big Sky First Round: #5 UND vs #12 SUU (3/8 4:35 Central)


Recommended Posts

After a frustrating finish to the season, its tourney time in Reno.  First up for UND, its SUU.

UND is 3-2 all time in the Big Sky tourney, and is 1-0 against SUU in the Big Sky tourney and is 5-3 all time against SUU since joining the Sky.

What has happened in the regular season is now in the past.  Every team is now 0-0 and quite simply, 3 to 4 wins in a row and you are dancing.  That said... UND has the tools to make a deep run, but can flame out early as well. 

UND simply just needs to take care of business and beat down a 5 win team.  The more they can get into their bench and get their regulars rest the better.  They cannot afford to slip up and end their season on a very sour note. Get some momentum and confidence going into the matchup against ISU with a victory.

Other Games:

Game 1: No. 8 Portland State vs No. 9 Northern Colorado, 2:05 p.m.
Game 3: No. 7 Montana State vs No. 10 Sacramento State, 7:35 p.m.
Game 4: No. 6 Eastern Washington vs No. 11 Northern Arizona, 10:05 p.m.

The call:

UND handled these guys for the most part at SUU.  SUU has lost 12 out of the last 13.  UND has no business losing to SUU... period.  Look for Geno and Hooker to get going and Avants and Drick to have solid games down load.  Bench players get some important minutes in a laugher

UND 81-58

Just for fun:

PSU over UNC 82-78

MSU over SAC 77-75

EWU over NAU 91-82

SUU, though, is playing some of its the best basketball of the season heading into Reno. The T-Birds ended a 10-game winning streak against Northern Arizona two Saturday’s ago, and four of their last five losses have come by less than 10 points. This past weekend they pushed Sacramento State to overtime before falling, 69-63, and had a late shot to tie the game in the loss to Portland State.
