WDAY TV - Our next stop in our tournament season is Grand Forks for the North Dakota Girls Class B basketball tournament. Earlier today, the bracket was revealed, with the top five teams being seeded. Undefeated North Star is the number one seed, led by NDSU recruit, the 6'5 Macey Kvilvang, they'll play Glen Ullin-Hebron, the Bearcats at state for the first time in school history. Watford City is the four seed, they were the runners-up last year, facing Our Redeemer's, out of Minot, who is at state for the first time ever.
WDAY TV - Even though last night's loss still stings for the MSUM Men's basketball team, one Dragon was awarded for a terrific season today. Aaron Lien has been named the NSIC Player of the year. Lein finished the season 5th in the conference in scoring. The Moorhead native scored in double figures in 18 of the 22 NSIC games this season. Lien and teammate Tanner Kretchman were both named to the All-NSIC first team today as well. The awards also rolled in for the Dragons Women's program, as Drew Sannes has also been named NSIC player of the year.
WDAY TV - It's no secret the UND Men's hockey team has been struggling as of late, with just 2 wins in the last 8 outings. The Fighting Hawks play their final home games of the regular season this weekend against Omaha, a team the Fighting Hawks swept earlier this season, scoring 16 goals in the series. Heading into the weekend, Brad Berry's team is just trying to stay loose, hoping things start to turn in their favor.
Fargo, ND - We drop the puck at the state hockey tournament in about 13 hours time with the girls quarterfinals. Davies enters as the five seed, but as Joel Sipper shows us in our Journey to the Tourney, the Eagles are ready to fly to the top.
Moorhead, MN - Chad Walthall joined WDAY Sports Director live to preview the Dragons' home game against Concordia-St. Paul to open the NSIC tournament.
Bemidji, MN - Scheels Arena will host another major hockey tournament in a month's time when the NCAA West Regional returns for a second time in three years. There's a good chance that Bemidji State will be in Fargo, which will be a homecoming of sorts for Beavers goalie, Michael Bitzer, the former Brimsek finalist from Moorhead. The former Spud is having a dream season. He leads the nation in wins, games played and minutes played. He's racked up four shutouts in the process. It's been a long road from his senior year with the Spuds without any scholarship offers.
Fargo, ND - The phrase going around rinks in North Dakota is simple from coaches; just win the first one. That has to be the mantra for the Davies boys, who come in to the state tournament as the three seed out of the East. They will be tested right out of the chute against Minot, the 2015 champions. Davies hasn't advanced out of the quarterfinals since 2013, and hope by winning seven of their last nine, the Eagles confidence is at all-time high.
