Watch for it...the official according to Prairie Country declaration of the Cinderella team in the 2009 NCAA Tournament is the North Dakota State University Bison.
Last night, the Bison beat Oakland -- yes, Oakland! -- with a last second 3-pt shot to win 66-64.
You heard it here first...the Bison will be the team to watch. The incredible story of the little university that could rise from Division 2 to Division 1AA and enter the NCAA in our first year of eligibility.
the Bison became the first NCAA-recognized team since the 1970 Long Beach State squad to advance to the Big Dance in its first year of eligibility.Oh, and ESPN? Get it right. It's not N Dak State. It's NDSU. And it's the Bizon, the Mighty, Mighty Bizon...
Something to cheer about in these times.
Now back to our previously scheduled digging out of the blizzard.....
