FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota State University men's basketball team this season will play games against Ohio State, Notre Dame, Saint Mary's and Southern Mississippi.

Notre Dame and Saint Mary's made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament last season, while Ohio State advanced to the Elite Eight. Southern Miss made it to the quarterfinals of the NIT.

NDSU coach Saul Phillips says his team's upcoming schedule is one of the more challenging ones the program has faced.

The Bison open the season with an exhibition game against Concordia Moorhead on Oct. 30. Viterbo comes to Fargo on Nov. 8 for NDSU's regular season opener.
