The North Dakota Sioux had zero problem in downing Minnesota Morris 99-69 as their offense was too bid and fast to be stopped.

The number 17 Wisconsin Badgers opened the season with a shocking loss to Western Illinois but came roaring back with a lopsided 92-65 rout od Siena. The Badgers opened up a 15 point lead heading to the locker room and never took their foot off the gas as they held the Saints to 39% from the field while burning the nets at a 59% pace with advantages throughout the boxscore. Bronson Koening pumped in a game high 23 points and snagged five boards with Vitto Brown netting 16 points and grabbing seven boards. Nigel Hayes followed with 14 points while Ethan Happ and Zak Showalter contributed eight points apiece.
The over is 8-3 in North Dakota’s last 11 overall. I think the Badgers received a huge wake up call in losing to the Leathernecks and won’t take North Dakota lightly. In my view if Wisconsin has a close call they are over rated in my eyes so I’m hoping for a huge performance here…
