COLLEGE STATION, Texas — UND’s game against Texas A&M in the first round of the NCAA Division I women’s basketball tournament Sunday night made it clear that North Dakota likely will be one of the favorites in the Big Sky Conference next season.
GRAND FORKS — The first season in the Big Sky Conference wasn’t easy for the University of North Dakota women’s basketball program. North Dakota won only six league games during the 2012-13 season and missed the league’s postseason tournament as well.
GRAND FORKS — A day earlier, Fargo Oak Grove nearly let a 20-point lead slip away.
GRAND FORKS — For the No. 1-ranked Rugby Panthers, 3-point attempt after 3-point attempt was off the mark. Some weren’t even close.
GRAND FORKS — For 15 years, a mandatory stop at Memorial Stadium was Bubba Schweigert’s office — the one located farthest from the head coach’s digs. Rarely did anyone leave Schweigert’s office in a bad mood.
GRAND FORKS — Professional football may be in store for the University of North Dakota senior wide receiver Greg Hardin.
GRAND FORKS — The list of applicants to become the University of North Dakota’s next head football coach grew again Tuesday, a week before the application deadline.
DAVIS, Calif. — A season that began with such promise because of a favorable home schedule, one of the best receiving corps in the pass-happy Big Sky Conference and two highly touted — but unproven — redshirt freshmen quarterbacks, ended on a picture-perfect Saturday night at UC Davis.
GRAND FORKS — For three-plus quarters, the University of North Dakota appeared to be headed for another home loss — one that could have turned out to be one of the more demoralizing setbacks in program history.
GRAND FORKS — Near the midway part of the season, the University of North Dakota settled on Joe Mollberg as its starting quarterback. Ryan Bartels, who was locked in a tight race with Mollberg for the starting job early in the year, didn’t sulk about the decision. Instead, he went to work.
