Meanwhile, North Dakota’s game on Saturday was all tied up 33-33 at the half, but sadly for them it didn’t stay that way. They fell 73-68 to the Bison.

North Dakota’s loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of B.J. Omot, who scored 22 points along with seven rebounds and two blocks, and Amar Kuljuhovic who dropped a double-double on 13 points and 11 rebounds. Kuljuhovic is trending in the right direction, as he’s improved his point production for three games straight.

St. hasn’t had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 77.2 points per game. However, it’s not like North Dakota struggles in that department as they’ve been averaging 75.1 points per game.
