On January 19, 2021, North Dakota women's basketball had yet to win a game.

Fast forward 365 days, the tide has turned for the Fighting Hawks. UND has won ten games this season, including a four-game win streak over the last two weeks, and finds itself in the top half of the Summit League.

"I know it looks crazy on the outside sometimes," head coach Mallory Bernhard said. "We're still putting ourselves in similar circumstances, we're just coming out on the side of it this time."

From Enderlin's Joe Hurlburt to Davies Mason Klabo, boys basketball is reaching a high point in North Dakota. WDAY sports director Dom Izzo explains why that point may still be ascending in the latest edition of Hot Mic.
