NDSU (25-6) is making its second Division I NCAA Tournament appearance in school history after sweeping The Summit League's regular season and tournament titles. The Bison were a 14 seed in 2009 when they dropped a first-round game to Kansas.


The No. 12 seed for NDSU is the highest for a Summit League team since 1997 and ties for the second-highest seed ever for a league team.
