WATCH: Bison fans celebrate title, Bison offer Davies freshman, more in 10:00PM Sportscast for Jan. 14th
NDSU renews its title tradition as fans had the chance for a meet and greet with Matt Entz following last weekend's FCS Championship.
FARGO— Six days after NDSU won the program's ninth national championship, fans in Fargo had the opportunity to see the hardware first hand. Bison coaches and fans gathered at Scheels this evening to celebrate the win against Montana State. After a year filled with adversity, Head coach Matt Entz says he's finally been able to exhale and enjoy moments like these with fans.
"This is great to be able to put a name with faces with the people of Fargo, the people who buy the tickets. It's the young people who come to youth camp or high school camps, but being able to let them get to see the trophies, take a picture with it, shake the hands and take a picture with our staff. This is North Dakota's team, this is Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan, this is their team and so we need to all celebrate this together," said Entz.
Bison men's basketball has had it's fair share of adversity as well, from three games already postponed due to Covid-19, to players suffering major injuries. Throughout these hurdles, Head Coach Dave Richman and his team continue to have a next man up mentality. NDSU has won six of its last seven games and as the Bison welcome Western Illinois on Saturday, they know they can't slow down now.
"A big part of who we are and our success has been us focusing in on us. We're playing with some new personnel because some other guys are out. We tweaked some things defensively, just trying to gain our guys a better understanding of those things," said Richman.
