Five high school seniors have signed letters of intent to play baseball for UND. The five are: Brett Harrison, Winnipeg; Zach Heaser, Eyota, Minn.; Miles Lewis, Hudson, Wis.; Cameron Powell, Bourbonnais, Ill; and Connor Trygstad, Plymouth, Minn.
From the sound of exploding grenades to the roar of the crowd, Almir Krdzalic’s journey to success has taken him from a war in Bosnia-Herzegovina to the University of Minnesota-Crookston campus and its basketball court.
NDSU was still sharp in an 86-43 victory Monday night over the Vikings. They shot 57 percent and rarely had a lapse on defense. Two factors were responsible for that: a veteran team that is used to traveling, and an NAIA opponent in Valley City that physically didn’t match up.
In previous seasons, the home for UND’s big games has been spacious and palatial Ralph Engelstad Arena — the 12,000-seat home of North Dakota hockey. Today, UND will play perhaps its most important home men’s basketball game of its Division I era against North Dakota State.
