NDSU Basketball Will Play at Scheels Arena

Posted: Updated:
The North Dakota State University athletic department and Scheels Arena announced a two-year agreement to host home NDSU men’s basketball games at the venue for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. The agreement also includes three women’s basketball games - a contest with the University of North Dakota on December 13, 2014, and two games as a part of Summit League doubleheaders on January 2 and January 4, 2015.

The NDSU Basketball teams made the agreement during the construction of the new Scheels Center at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex on the NDSU campus.

“We are excited about the opportunity to play our basketball games in Scheels Arena,” said NDSU athletic director Gene Taylor. “We appreciate their cooperation and willingness to work with us the next two years.”

Scheels Arena staff had similar sentiments.

“We are thrilled to be able to serve as NDSU men’s basketball’s temporary home for their next two seasons,” said Scheels Arena general manager Jon Kram. “Our goal is to support the community in which we operate and NDSU athletics is large part of that community.  We were happy we were able to accommodate their needs and look forward to working with them over the next two years.”

Information on tickets and seating for NDSU men’s basketball at Scheels Arena will be provided on GoBison.com in June.

“We are extremely excited and very appreciative of the opportunity to partner with Scheels Arena,” said NDSU head men’s basketball coach David Richman. “There is no doubt that it will provide a first-class atmosphere for our fans and our student-athletes.”

The Bison finished the 2013-14 season with a record of 26-7, sweeping The Summit League’s regular season and tournament titles and posting the first NCAA Tournament win in school history.

Scheels Arena is a 5,000-seat multi-purpose hockey rink and event center that opened in 2008. The arena is home to the Fargo Force and Fargo high school hockey teams have played there.  Scheels arena has also hosted a variety of events such as the 2014 United States Olympic Team Trials for Curling, the upcoming 2015 NCAA West Regional for men’s ice hockey and numerous concerts.
