GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – In the final home games of their careers, Chris Jandric and Ethan Frisch left their mark by each striking for a goal in the third period to lead North Dakota past No. 14 Omaha, 2-1, on Saturday night from a sold-out Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D. With the win, UND (16-13-6, 10-10-4 NCHC) finishes tied for fifth in the league standings and books a return date to Omaha (18-13-3, 13-9-2 NCHC) for the NCHC Quarterfinals beginning next Friday night from Baxter Arena. Drew DeRidder, also playing in his final collegiate home game, extended his unbeaten streak to a career-best six games with a 28-of-29 performance to improve to 8-3-3 between the pipes since Dec. 9 and give him one-or-fewer goal allowed at even strength in seven of his last 12 starts.
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (UND) – The North Dakota men’s basketball team saw their season come to an end Saturday night as they fell to Oral Roberts 96-80 in the first Summit League quarterfinal game. Five Hawks reached double figures as B.J. Omot led the way with 15 points, Treysen Eaglestaff and Tsotne Tsartsidze each had 11 and Mitchell Sueker and Matt Norman each scored ten. It was the first time five Hawks got into double figures since December 12th of 2022 against North Central, but the hot start from ORU proved too much for the Hawks to overcome. Much like the game in Tulsa last month, ORU came out of the gates seemingly unable to miss. The Hawks were shooting well from the floor at 46.4% in the first half, but the threes were not going down for UND as they shot 2-12 from downtown while ORU shot 7-14 from beyond the arc in the first half to build a 56-31 halftime lead. However, UND came out with energy in the second half determined to make it a game. The first six points of the half belonged to UND, with two layups from Norman and a coast-to-coast driving layup from Jalun Trent. ORU responded with a basket but the hot start for UND continued as they cut the ORU lead to 16 following a three from Brady Danielson to make it 60-44. The triple culminated a 13-4 run by the Hawks to open the half. But each time that UND looked to be gaining a little bit of momentum, ORU had an answer. The Hawks closed the game on 9-0 run, but it was too steep of a hill to climb. The Hawks more than doubled their wins this season from a year ago, and tripled their wins in Summit League play; while also winning their first Summit League Tournament game in three years. With a young core returning next season, the future looks bright for the Hawks.
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (NDSU) – The second-seeded North Dakota State women’s basketball team came up short against 10th-seeded Kansas City, 71-64, in the Summit League Tournament quarterfinal round on Saturday afternoon at Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. Heaven Hamling paced the Bison (18-11, 12-6 Summit) with 16 points and added five assists and four rebounds to her stat line. Elle Evans reached double figures in scoring for the 13th straight game with 14 points to go along with six rebounds and two steals. Emily Behnke rounded out the top performers with seven points, seven rebounds and three steals. As a team, the Bison shot 35.5 percent (22-62) from the field and 65.2 percent (15-23) from the free throw line. NDSU netted 34 points in the paint and the bench added in 19 points. After trailing at halftime, 41-29, the Bison stormed back closing the third quarter on an 11-0 run capped off by back-to-back jumpers from Hamling to make the score 56-54 at the end of the third frame. The Roo’s (9-22, 3-15 Summit) quickly stretched their lead back up to seven, 63-56, after Stafford E’Lease knocked down a three with 6:23 to play. The Bison made one final push after Hamling netted a triple and Behnke added a free throw to pull back within three, 67-64, with 2:22 remaining. However, NDSU couldn’t pull off the comeback and dropped the contest, 71-64.
