Christensen Signs to NDSU Men's Basketball

BRECKENRIDGE, Minn. (Valley News Live) -- Breckenridge senior Noah Christensen has signed his National Letter of Intent to join the North Dakota State Men's Basketball team next year.

The 6-foot-9 forward gave a verbal commitment to NDSU in April and on Wednesday made it official.

"Being a Bison is what I've dreamed about since I was a little kid. Now I can focus on the final season with the Cowboys," Christensen said.

Christensen said it was important to make the decision early to focus on his senior season, "I'm really excited for the final season. I think we've got big things for the Cowboys ahead and I can't wait for this summer."

"Noah is a great kid from a great family who has a true desire to be a Bison," said NDSU Head Coach David Richman in a statement. "He's a selfless, team-first player that prioritizes winning above all else. We're thrilled to have him and the rest of the Christensen family join the Bison family."

"Noah has great length and a skillset that has continually improved because of his work ethic," Richman said. "He can play inside and out, handling the ball and guarding multiple positions, while also being able to shoot it. He comes from a great high school program that is extremely well-coached by Arly Ohm. Noah is a winner on and off the floor, he's excited to be a Bison, and we can't wait to get him on campus next summer."
