After nine years banning metal bats, the NDHSAA Board of Directors voted 5-3 during a meeting in Valley City on Tuesday to allow BBCOR (Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution) bats beginning next spring. "The board debated quite a while and had a lengthy discussion," NDHSAA assistant director Justin Fletschock said. In 2007, North Dakota became the first state to ban metal bats due to safety concerns.

The UND men's basketball team added size and depth with its latest transfer addition. UND has landed 6-foot-8, 200-pound transfer Solomon Rolls-Tyson from Utah State Eastern junior college. Rolls-Tyson, of Birmingham, England, averaged 12 points and 6 rebounds for USU Eastern last season. He shot 50.8 percent from the field and 38 percent from the 3-point line.
