"They really dominated the paint in the first half," North Dakota coach Brian Jones said. "We thought we did a good job of fighting and trying to make them battle for catches further out on the floor. But they were so big. They would go and counter it and shoot right over the top of us."
"We have a lot of pride in the Fighting Hawks scenario," Jones said. "We're still building our brand, building who we are nationally from a basketball standpoint. March Madness is the best deal out there because of the story lines that can happen."
