First Appearance in the NCAA

This year is the first year that North Dakota State University has hada population large enough to be in NCAA Div I. They made it fair-and-square into the tourney and are in the middle of playing Kansas right now; NDSU is #14 and Kansas is #3. I can't watch the game (supposed to be working )but I've been refreshing my browser to catch the score updates. NDSU has been 3 to 4 points behind almost the whole game. I just wish they could pull out ahead and win it - the Cinderella story of the Midwest Division.

I have never ever watched NCAA basketball before but now that we actually have a home team it's worth it to keep in touch.

ADDED: Well, so much for big hopes. They lost to Kansas by 10. Maybe next year!

Re: First Appearance in the NCAA

Congrats on making it to the NCAAs.

Kansas is very good team - they won the Big 12 season, but lost early in the Big 12 Champsionship playoffs. There are a lot of teams out there that would love to be able to hang with Kansas like NDSU did.

I'm more in college football, but it looks like my college teams are shooting for a trifecta (Heisman, Naesmith and whatever they call the women's best BB player). So we are also hoping both the men's and women's teams play in the finals this year......

Re: First Appearance in the NCAA

Sorry that NDSU is out Jo. You can always cheer for your neighbors, the Lady Jackrabbits from South Dakota State University, as they also made it to the dance in their first year of eligibility (NDSU and SDSU applied and went into the Summit League Div 1 at the same time). We play Sunday night down in Lubbock, TX. My spouse is the official photographer for SDSU, so he is traveling with the team.

On a side note.... my husband's photo is currently being displayed on Sports Illustrated's website. He LOVES to shoot sporting events, so this is really exciting for us. It's an image that he shot for AP and it happens to be of NDSU.

Neat picture, Debbie!

I really wasn't expecting NDSU to take the game because I know the history in Kansas. I was just wishing for that "Cinderella story" like I was talking about.
