Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - No candy was needed to get fans at MSU Moorhead excited for tonight's exhibition opener for the men's basketball team.

Chad Walthall's team coming off a 2nd round NCAA tournament appearance, ready to take the next step, facing Northwestern College.

Hoops fans got their first look at the new videoboards.

Early on former Moorhead Spud Matt Watnemo had four for the Eagles.

But it was the Dragons game from the outset. Jordan Riewer finished with 17.

It was also the Dragon debut of Division one transfer Anthony Tucker, the former Iowa Hawkeye sat out last year. He led everybody with 19 points, including 5-of-8 from downtown.

Dragons win 78-44.
