Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Tomorrow isn't your typical slow sports Sunday. That's because UND and NDSU will clash in men's basketball. The Bison have won two of the three division one meetings, but this will be the first time this rivalry takes court at the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center.

Both teams have realistic expectations to make the NCAA tournament in March. But, right now UND head coach Brian Jones is focused on stopping a veteran Bison squad.

Jones: “We are going to have to play at a high level, the energy, the execution, and just urgency, because they are well seasoned, that doesn't beat themselves, use to playing in hostile environments. So we are going to have to truly have to be on top of our game in this early season.”

That's a 5:05 tip-off.
