SWSiouxMN Posted March 9, 2016 Share Posted March 9, 2016 It wasn't pretty, but behind another great Hooker performance lead UND to take the first round game against SUU. Now they move on to take on ISU for the 3rd time this season. Winner of this game gets the Weber/PSU winner UND has never lost to ISU since entering the Big Sky, going 7-0. This matchup will feature two of the very best in the Big Sky in Telfair and Hooker and should be another battle of the guards. But UND does have an advantage in the forward and center position and needs to take advantage of it. Need to shake off yesterdays performance and try to recapture some of that play that was with them in late January. Other Games: Weber vs PSU 2:35 Montana vs Sac State 7:35 Idaho vs EWU 10:05 The call: The old adage that is believe by some that it is tough to beat a team 3 times in a season. How can UND avoid the trap? Doing what they have been doing against ISU. Keep the guards from going off, Hooker having a good game and an balanced attack from Drick and Geno. The first matchup was 84-76 UND and the 2nd was 76-60 UND. I think the game will lean towards game 1 than game 2 in terms of score... but the results will stay the same UND 81-73 Other games: Weber over PSU: They get a scare from PSU, but Weebs has enough to get the job done Montana over Sac: They too get a scare, but the Griz make plays done the stretch to pull it out Idaho over EWU: Toughest matchup outside of ISU/UND to call, I could see this go either way but Idaho at full health seems to be back to where they were at the beginning of the conference season. If McBroom goes off to help Jois, then the Ealges might have enough to beat the Vandals. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
