Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The Bison men's basketball team has one final game before they can actually take a break from a brutal early season non-conference schedule.
They'll play in their fourth different time zone; Mountain to face Utah Valley.
NDSU is coming off an impressive win over CAA favorite Towson on Saturday night and know they can't have a letdown before they take a 10-day break.
Marshall Bjorklund- Shooting 69% FC (2nd in Nation): “We know that they're a good team. They came to our house last year and punched us in the mouth for most of the game. We squeaked it out in the end. They're going to give us our best shot. They've got good players. They're a good team, so it should be a good game.”
Saul Phillips- NDSU Head Coach: “Our program hasn't won in that gym, period. That's what I know and Dick Huntzinker is a terrific coach. He's done it there. They haven't been in a conference forever. Now, they're in one, at least. I know what we're getting into. This is another one. Throw RPIs out. We haven't won there as a program. That means something to me; that bothers me.”
NDSU beat Utah Valley in Fargo last year.
