Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- The holiday break couldn't have come any sooner for the UND men's basketball team.

Brian Jones and company have struggled all season to close out games, having just won twice thru the first ten games. Finishing has been the key issue for North Dakota. In 3 of it's last 5 losses, UND had a lead with under 3 and a half minutes to play.

Brian Jones, UND Head Coach, says, "It's the same old analogy that we've been struggling with. We can't get stops down the stretch when it's in game-winning mode. We need to get stops in the last four minutes, the last two minutes, the last minute and a half. You need a stop and a score and that's what we're struggling at doing right now."
