For the fifth time in the last six seasons, the UND men's basketball team will play in the CollegeInsider.com tournament. But for the first time, the Fighting Hawks will play host. UND (17-15) will host UC Irvine (25-9) of the Big West Conference on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center. UND has never won in the CIT. UND lost at Nebraska Omaha in 2014, at Northern Iowa in 2013, at Drake in 2012 and at Air Force in 2011.
The UND men's hockey team is headed back to Minneapolis for the Frozen Faceoff, and the Fighting Hawks can expect a much tougher challenge than Colorado College provided in the NCHC quarterfinals. No. 1 UND manhandled the No. 8 Tigers for a second straight night Saturday, scoring four goals in the first period en route to an easy 5-1 win at Ralph Engelstad Arena. It's a safe bet things won't be that easy at the Target Center for the remainder of the conference tournament. The Frozen Faceoff is shaping up to be a gauntlet.
In the first half of the season, one concern for the UND offense was the reliance on the dynamic top line of Nick Schmaltz, Drake Caggiula and Brock Boeser. As we’re closing in on mid-March, there’s now a crazy bit of trivia that goes directly against that early-season storyline.
Two UND football players were arrested Saturday night. Iwarri Smith, 18, was arrested for drug paraphernalia, while Tim Dulin, 18, was booked for marijuana possession. "We are aware of the situation and are gathering more information," UND coach Bubba Schweigert said in an emailed statement. "Out of respect for the process, we will have no further comment at this time." Both players were true freshman during the 2015 season. Smith, of Farmington Hills, Mich., had 237 rushing yards and a touchdown. He converted from running back to wide receiver for spring drills.
At 6:45 p.m. Saturday night, UND freshman forward Joel Janatuinen was in his dorm room when he received a call from assistant coach Matt Shaw. North Dakota forward Nick Schmaltz was a late injury scratch after warmups and the Fighting Hawks needed Janatuinen to hop into the lineup. Janatuinen wasn't told the injury scenario during the phone call, only that he needed to be at the rink. When he arrived at the rink, UND trainer Mark Poolman told him he was playing.
Breck coach Les Larson didn’t do any bragging when he was asked how his team was able to stop Thief River Falls star forward Ethan Johnson.
