Injuries and defections caused UND to dress just four wide receivers in its final game of the 2014 season at Northern Colorado. As UND opened spring football practice Friday at Memorial Stadium, depth and production at wide receiver are question marks the coaches are trying to address. The UND offense finished last in the Big Sky Conference in total offense, scoring offense and only better than run-heavy Cal Poly in pass offense.

The last three years in a row, the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team was knocked out of the WCHA Final Face-Off semifinals -- the last two years, it was UND that did it. The third time was a charm for the Badgers as they returned the favor as they beat UND 4-1 on Saturday at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
When you shoot a lot of 3-pointers, you live or die by it. No. 3-seed Red River, which gets about 30 percent of its points from behind the arc, lived by it on Tuesday as it beat No. 6 Wahpeton 56-48 to advance to the semifinals of the East Region Tournament.
Just a point separated Grand Forks Red River and Fargo Shanley during each of the regular-season meetings between the teams, with each team winning once. Another nail-biter was anticipated Tuesday as the teams entered East Region play. However, a career-high 38 points from Red River senior guard Shayden Keplin and a 24-4 Roughrider run through the first 10 minutes of the game allowed No. 4 seed Red River to coast into the East Region semifinals with a 74-61 win over No. 5 Shanley at Red River gym.
WARROAD, Minn. — An East Grand Forks assistant coach walked to the penalty box after Thursday’s Minnesota Section 8A boys hockey championship game. He grabbed the puck that senior Green Wave defenseman Reed Hjelle scored with in overtime that lifted the defending state champions back to the state tournament for the third year in a row with a thrilling 4-3 overtime win over Thief River Falls. It happened to be Hjelle’s first goal of his varsity career.
North Dakota had already secured home ice in the first round of the WCHA women’s hockey playoffs. But it didn’t have to look very hard for things to play for in Saturday’s regular-season finale. After making nine saves in Friday’s rout of Minnesota State Mankato, Shelby Amsley-Benzie was tested a bit more during Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
Minnesota State Mankato had nothing to lose, while UND had much to gain. Friday's UND 7-0 win at Ralph Engelstad Arena over the Mavericks (3-29-1 overall, 1-25-1 in WCHA) clinched home ice for North Dakota in the first round of the WCHA playoffs for the fifth-straight year. The win also marked the fourth-straight season that UND will finish in the top three in the conference. But UND feels it has more goals to accomplish, starting with completing the sweep today at 4:07 p.m. "Yes, that (home ice) was a goal," UND coach Brian Idalski said. "And finish as high as we could ... so that's nice.
