In February of 2015, Grand Forks Herald Publisher Korrie Wenzel attended a high school basketball tournament at the Alerus Center. He thought it would be a good idea for high school football games to be played in the venue as well. That set in motion the plans that resulted in the creation of today's Sugar Beet Classic presented by The Grand Forks Herald and Altru Advanced Orthopedics. Grand Forks Central and West Fargo will meet at 4:30 p.m. today at the Alerus Center, followed by the Fargo Davies-Grand Forks Red River game at 7:30 p.m.
Roughly 20 years ago, UND men's basketball coach Brian Jones and Brad Davidson were professional basketball teammates in Australia. At the time, there was a strong connection between Jones, a center, and Davidson, a guard. "We hit it off straight-away and I've been in contact with him throughout the years," said Davidson. That connection is as strong as ever. Davidson, Australia's national shooting coach, was named a UND assistant on Wednesday. UND opened its preseason practices earlier this week and Davidson will join the program immediately.

UND 31, Cal Poly 24 CP 0 7 7 10 -24 UND 10 0 14 7 -31 First quarter UND: Keaton Studsrud 16 run (Reid Taubenheim kick), 7:58 remaining.

Drive: 11 plays, 28 yards, 5:27
UND let Cal Poly off the hook in the first half. A 10-7 UND halftime lead should have been more like a 24-0 advantage. In the second half, UND again let No. 16 Cal Poly off the ropes again—allowing the Mustangs within 2 yards of potentially tying the game with under two minutes to play. Yet, UND hung on—winning 31-24 on Saturday to improve to 2-0 in the Big Sky Conference and 3-2 overall. The seven-point difference was the largest among UND's five games this season.
