North Dakota is #277 on KenPom. Two of their four wins are non-D1, and a third win was against 0-11 Arkansas-Pine Bluff. There are actually four Big Sky teams ranked worse than them, so they have that going for them. They are from North Dakota (where everyone knows the most dangerous job there is riding shotgun in a garbage truck -- sorry, you probably won't get it unless you're from Montana).

GamePredict forecasts a lopsided win (http://gamepredict.us/kenpom?team_a=North%20Dakota&team_b=Gonzaga&neutral=false) for the Bulldogs. Not much to say. They take care of the ball and like to turn you over, looking at the statsheet. A little more interestingly, they attempt 2-pointers at twice the rate of 3's. That does not bode well for them in this game, and I would advise them to take 3's on every single one of their shots.

Reason for concern:
On 11/28/2017 North Dakota beat Presentation 82 - 75
On 11/21/2017 Presentation beat Concordia SP 87 - 73
On 11/17/2017 Concordia SP beat WI Milwaukee 69 - 55
On 11/13/2017 WI Milwaukee beat Iowa St 74 - 56
On 11/19/2017 Iowa St beat Boise St 75 - 64
On 11/28/2017 Boise St beat Loyola-Chicago 87 - 53
On 12/6/2017 Loyola-Chicago beat Florida 65 - 59
On 11/24/2017 Florida beat Gonzaga 111 - 105!

Good luck, Fighting Hawks from NORTH DAKOTA!

I like the comparative scores, cad. Did you do all the legwork? Yep, Zags better show up.
