The North Dakota Fighting Hawks are playing some solid basketball out of the gate, beating a very good Troy team and nearly topping Hawaii on its home court. The Fighting Hawks seem to be in regular season form early which is good news considering this team made the big dance last year and put up a fight against Arizona. The Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions has struggled big time defensively and has never had success when stepping up in comp. This should be a rather easy victory for the Fighting Hawks, so give me North Dakota in a beatdown.
