NDSU might get a decent seed as well. possible 12-13?? they will have a real chance at winning the first round i think

A 12 and 13 seed is really pushing it. They don't have enough marquee wins to justify that high of a seeding. But a 14 seed seems to be the most logical.

ESPN last week had them at a 14 (I think), this week as a 13 vs. Missouri.

18 of the last 19 is pretty impressive though. I tihnk 13 would be the right fit, 12 is a stretch but i also dont see them any lower then a 14.

Congratulations to NDSU!!

They just don't have the bodywork for a 12, and I don't think there will be enough small conference upsets for them to reach a #12. The loss against SUU a couple weeks ago probably kissed their #13 goodbye too.

I think they'll get a 14 seed. Hopefully they won't get matched up with a team that is strong inside or it could be an ugly game.

Congrats, that was a very scary game for the first 3/4 of the game. Bison did just what they needed to do to win though.

When are the seedings going to be announced?

I agree, that 5 point possession I thought was the nail in the coffin. I am soooo glad the Bison proved me wrong. I was so jacked for this game. Bison alum here and my phone was flooded with txts and calls from old roommates and buddies. gosh darn(pc language) it was a good night!!! Even saw Thundar in the crowd! Proud to be a Nodak right now!!!

CBS will have their selection show on Sunday at 5:00pm to see who NDSU plays and where.

This from Sid Hartman today at the Star Tribune:
The best thing that could happen in the first and second rounds of the NCAA tournament regionals scheduled for the Metrodome March 20 and 22 is for North Dakota State to be one of the teams in this region. Overnight, you would have a sellout.

Bilas just said if Kansas is looking past NDSU they are making a Bucknell type mistake.

Lots of Bison fans will be in the Metrodome cheering on North Dakota State! Regardless of outcome this is going to be fun! History is being made right before our eyes. No team from North Dakota has ever made it to the Big Dance before. This is great for the state of ND. Go Bison!

What time do they play on Friday? Anyone know what station it will be televised on? If my wife and I didn't have a baby due any day now I'd be heading to Mpls for the weekend.
