"That was a very entertaining couple of hours of volleyball,'' UND coach Ashley Hardee said. "Idaho State is well-coached with some great athletes. It's hard to single anyone out on our side because it was a full team effort. We passed great in serve receive when we needed it most and blocked some huge balls in the final two sets.''
