NDSU has 7 games left at Bison Sports Arena


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.
