March Madness continues for NDSU  

They call it March Madness for a reason. Each year, the NCAA Division I men’s basketball
tournament has enough upset wins, buzzer-beating shots and standout individual
performances to keep fans on the edge of their seats for weeks.

It’s one of the most watched and most talked about events in sports. Only 68 teams are invited.
There are 67 games played over 19 days. And the stakes are high for each team. Win and
advance; lose and the season ends.

Summit League tournament champion North Dakota State University defeated North Carolina
Central 78-74 in a First Four matchup on Wednesday. NDSU is now scheduled to play top-
ranked Duke on Friday, March 22, at 6:10 p.m., in Columbia, South Carolina. The game will be
televised on CBS.

This is NDSU’s fourth NCAA tournament appearance. The team’s last victory in the tournament
before North Carolina Central was against Oklahoma in 2014.
