FARGO—At this rate, North Dakota State will have a decision to make inside the Shelly Ellig Track and Field Facility: Either get smaller title banners or expand the building. Make it 21 in a row for the Bison.
FARGO—Dave Richman traded his suit coat for a T-shirt at his weekly press conference on Tuesday, which also served as a reminder that his toughest stretch as the head North Dakota State men's basketball coach is not the hardest thing in life. His 10-year-old neighbor is going through cancer treatments. The slogan "Landon's Light" was front and center on Richman's shirt, a show of support for Landon Solberg, a fourth grader at Freedom Elementary in West Fargo.

FARGO—The National Girls and Women in Sports Day at North Dakota State on Thursday was a success, with about 250 participants.

FARGO—You see glimpses of brilliance from Deng Geu from time to time, whether it's a no-doubt dunk from the 6-foot-8 North Dakota State sophomore or a shutdown defensive play. It was there again on Saturday afternoon, just when the Bison needed it.
FARGO—North Dakota State hired a women's head soccer coach with 13 years of experience in the college ranks. Michael Regan is only 33 years old. It's been a quick ascent in the business and on Friday, NDSU introduced its fifth head coach in program history. Regan was 20 years old when he took the head men's coaching position at North Iowa Area Community College. He was a player at North Iowa for two years before taking over for Colin Murphy, a coach who was also a lawyer in town.
