Fargo - As impressive as the conference RPI has been for the Summit League – it’s at an all-time Division I high – the funds being put into a construction boom is even more grandiose. Four schools are spending a combined $244 million on facility upgrades.

That includes North Dakota State’s $41 million Scheels Center, which is expected to open in two years. It means there are only seven games left in the Bison Sports Arena.

“There will be no tears when we play the final game in this building,” said Bison head men’s basketball coach Saul Phillips.
