UND (11-18, 5-11) vs WIU (15-12, 8-8) 2/23 11 AM


Recommended Posts

It got nervy towards the end, but BJ Omot acted as the teams closer and UND got out of KC with a road win and series sweep of the Roos. Now its time to come home for the last two games of the season.  First up, the Leatherneck of Western Illinois.

The month of February hasn't been kind to WIU.  After they went on a heater in late January to get to 7-4 in the Summit, they have since crashed down to .500, losing 4 out of their last 5. With the league so compacted in the middle right now, a great or poor weekend could mean the difference between a 3 seed... and a 7 seed!

UND knows how dangerous Massner is, but UND has found their groove recently.  

What is guaranteed in a win:

If UND wins, they cannot finish 10th.

What is guaranteed in a loss:

UND cannot get to the 6th seed.

Milestone Watch:

Norman still sits on 73 made 3s on the season.  He is 11 shy of tying Q for the UND D1 record for made 3s in a season.  If he can avoid a late season slump, he should break it sometime in Sioux Falls.

Other games to watch for UND seeding purposes (Thursday Edition)


Reason:  A USD loss and a UND win would have these two squads tied for 7th.  


Reason: A KC loss, USD loss and UND win would keep UNDs hopes for a 6 seed alive.

UND has been playing well in the month of February and with a larger sample size, one could argue that the prospects of the program is starting to turn.  This weekend will be a good test to see how far they have grown, especially against UST.  If they can get two wins and end the season winning 6 out of 7, you have to feel good about the direction things are going.

The Call:

The 11 AM start is going to be unique and whoever can handle it better will come away with the win.  Look for UND to do a better job against guarding Massner and look for UND to get Norman back on track.  I think the great play continues and UND makes it 5 out of their last 6.

UND 83-74

Will be at the game today! Hoping there is a decent crowd to create a good atmosphere! I think UND does a much better job guarding Massner this time around as well! They only lost by 8 on the road last time, even with a guy scoring 46. UND is the better team, especially as of late. UND gets the win today!
