SWSiouxMN Posted February 23, 2019 Share Posted February 23, 2019 UND put together one of their better performances of the year as they took down ORU, now UND looks to punch their ticket into Sioux Falls as they take on a struggling DU team. To say this has been a season to forget for DU is an understatement, injuries have taken a toll on a team that was expected to be a top 4 team in the Summit. Now they are tying to make one last dash to just make into Sioux Falls. If there is any good news, they do have 2 good opportunities to get wins and perhaps get into the tournament. They do know however that 2 more losses will write the book on the DU season. Its simple for UND, a win and they go to the Summit League tournament. If they win and a loss to WIU would clinch them the 7 seed. I would like to see UND, no matter what happens, to finish the season strong and start to build the process for next season. Honoring the Seniors: UND will be honoring their 2 seniors: Connor Avants and Cortez Seales, who have been solid contributors in each of their 4 season at UND. They were apart of a NCAA Tournament and BSC Conference Championship team. Both players have scored well over 1000 career points in their career. Avants was the blue collar guy, his motor was always running and you look up the box score and realize that despite his shorter stature, he would put up 14 and 7 a night. Seales was at the time a highly touted recruit from Iowa and his old school mid range game carved up a 2-3 zone many times. He also was a solid rebounder, defender and the occasional ball handler. He was awarded the reserve of the year in 2016-17 in the BSC. He moved into the starting lineup for the last two years and have been a solid starter. Thank you to Connor and Cortez. Milestone Watch: Moody has 70 3 pointers this season, which is 10th all time on the single season record list at UND. While it will be tough for Moody to catch the all time record at 104 this year, minus an epic run at the Summit League Tournament. He is within shouting distance of the record at the D-1 level, which is 84, set by Hooker. Other Games: Omaha (11-2) @ NDSU (8-5) USD (5-8) @ SDSU (12-2) ORU (6-8) @ WIU (3-10) The Call: Simple for UND, win and in. I think they build on their ORU performance and while they won't shoot as well as they did against them, it will be good enough to get the job done. UND 82-72 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
