Also:FARGO – The Big Ten is coming to Fargo. The Minnesota Gophers women’s basketball team will visit the Scheels Center on November 17 for a non-conference game against North Dakota State, according to Bison coach Jory Collins.
It is NDSU’s first game against the Gophers since 2011 and only the second time the Bison have hosted Minnesota. NDSU defeated the Gophers 62-48 at Bison Sports Arena in the 2006-07 season. NDSU is 1-6 all-time against Minnesota, the last game being an 80-41 loss at Williams Arena in November 2011.
The Bison are coming off a disappointing 11-18 season, including a 7-11 mark in the Summit League. NDSU lost to Kansas City in the first round of the conference tournament.
Greater things were expected from the Bison after a 15-9, 9-7 season in COVID-hit 2020-21, but injuries, player departures and internal turmoil torpedoed NDSU. An assistant coach left after the season, and when the dust settled, the Bison lost eight players through graduation or the NCAA transfer portal.
NDSU depart in two weeks for a trip to Greece where they will play two games in eight days
