KeblarAdeline Lorraine KvamAnna Mae Habiger HundDaniel Hughes, Jr. North Dakota State guard Lawrence Alexander said the Denny Sanford Premier Center reminded him of Veterans Memorial Arena in Spokane, Wash., where NDSU played in the NCAA tournament last year. He was an uncharacteristic 4 of 14 from the field and had more turnovers, three, than assists, two.”I just have to get comfortable and get in a rhythm next game,” Alexander said. “My teammates do a tremendous job of getting me the ball like always. I had confidence, they had confidence, coach had confidence. I just have to step up and knock them down.”Neither NDSU or Denver shot well in the 61 50 Bison win. NDSU shot 43 percent, hitting 18 of 42 shots. Jacobson came to the rescue with 23 points, hitting 7 of 10 field goals. Jacobson and the year that he’s had,” said Bison head coach Dave Richman. “I mean, he starts the year against two really good opponents and he went 1 for 19 at Texas and Iowa. He goes through that stretch where he’s out five or six games. The mental toughness that it takes to respond to all of those things, I don’t think we can measure that.”NDSU also got a nice contribution from Paul Miller off the bench, although even Miller was off the mark. An 83 percent free throw shooter, he was just 2 of 6 and NDSU as a team was 24 of 40. Still, his one field goal with Alexander on the bench with foul trouble helped the Bison maintain a lead late in the game.”There were plenty of times this year where ’12’ picked us up,” said Richman, referring to Alexander’s jersey number. “It was time for other guys to step up. was tremendous and Paul was good. Paul plays 31 minutes and his stats don’t jump out at you, but to have him out there in a game of this magnitude is a real credit to him.”The fans are responding to the magnitude of the tournament. The Saturday night session drew 9,773, setting an all time record for any session in the 31 years of the Summit tournament. The previous mark was 9,247 set in the 1993 championship game in Dayton, Ohio. The previous quarterfinal high was 7,239 in 1994 in Rosemount, Ill.”This is one of the nicest places we’ve played in all year,” Jacobson said. “It was a good atmosphere and a good environment.”The senior struggled from the field Saturday in the opening round win over the University of Denver. He was an uncharacteristic 4 of 14 from the field and had more turnovers, three, than assists, two.

“I just have to get comfortable and get in a rhythm next game,” Alexander said. “My teammates do a tremendous job of getting me the ball like always. I had confidence, they had confidence, coach had confidence. I just have to step up and knock them down.”

Neither NDSU or Denver shot well in the 61 50 Bison win. NDSU shot 43 percent, hitting 18 of 42 shots. The Pioneers were worse at 36 percent.

But it was NDSU that moved on. The title game that sends the Summit winner to the NCAA tournament is Tuesday night.

With the Premier Center’s dark cushioned seats similar to the black chairs of the Spokane Arena, it had a similar look, albeit new and more modern, than the NCAA venue that saw Alexander hit 10 of 15 field goals in the upset over the Sooners. He was off against Denver, including one shot that didn’t draw iron. Jacobson came to the rescue with 23 points, hitting 7 of 10 field goals. Jacobson played all 40 minutes and seems to be asserting himself even more into the Bison game plan after being saddled with a knee injury early in the season.

NDSU also got a nice contribution from Paul Miller off the bench, although even Miller was off the mark. An 83 percent free throw shooter, he was just 2 of 6 and NDSU as a team was 24 of 40. Still, his one field goal with Alexander on the bench with foul trouble helped the Bison maintain a lead late in the game.
