North Dakota State enters the final month of the conference basketball season with everything at stake.

The men are pushing for a top two seed at the Summit League Tournament, while the women are trying to turn around what has been a disappointing season to date.

The NDSU men knocked off Omaha 71-64 on Thursday night at the SHAC, a game that was much closer than it needed to be for the Bison against a four win Maverick team.

The Bison women got some payback, defeating Omaha on the road 69-53. The Mavericks beat NDSU in Fargo in early January, one of only two wins Omaha has all year in league play.

Each team takes on Denver on Saturday. Kolpack and Izzo discuss the current status of the women's team in comparison to South Dakota and South Dakota State and the gap that is there.


South Dakota State’s Tylee Irwin gaurds North Dakota State’s Heaven Hamling during their women’s basketball game on Saturday, January 29, 2022, at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex inside the Scheels Center in Fargo.

They also discuss the Summit League's mirror scheduling and what can be done to remedy it for the next season as women's basketball games continue to be left behind in this format.

The guys also discuss NDSU wrapping up the 2022 football signing class, which includes signing a cornerback from Florida that had Power 5 offers.
