The Minnesota State Moorhead basketball doubleheader against Upper Iowa on Friday at Alex Nemzek Fieldhouse will be aired on Midco Sports Network, which is available in West Fargo and Moorhead. The women’s game is set for 6 p.m. and the men’s game for 8 p.m.
The No. 16-ranked MSUM (12-1, 8-1 NSIC) moved up in the three spots in this week’s NABC/Division II coaches poll, despite a 21-points loss at the University of Mary last Saturday. The Dragons rebounded the following night with a solid 81-74 victory at Northern State in Aberdeen, S.D.
A first-place showdown is looming for the MSUM men Saturday when they host No. 13-ranked Winona State (13-2, 8-1) at 6 p.m. Both teams are tied for first place entering the weekend. A win would be an important step for MSUM if it hopes to win the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference title.
The Dragons haven’t won a conference championship since the 1981-82 season.
