I chatted with North Dakota State basketball coach Saul Phillips on Monday evening and wrote about the North Dakota State success story for the Wednesday Oklahoman. You can read that column here.
Talking with Phillips was a pleasure. He comes from a different world, as you know. I mean, Lon Kruger is as accessible and accommodating as it gets, but this was even moreso. The North...
North Dakota State star Taylor Braun got quite a knot on his head after he was inadvertently kicked in the noggin by Oklahoma's Cameron Clark. Braun just hit a go ahead runner when he hit the deck and was kicked. No penalty was called on the play even though the officials reviewed it on the replay monitor.

AS SAUL PHILLIPS danced across my TV screen yesterday in the wake of his North Dakota State Bisons’ overtime upset of Oklahoma in the Spokane Arena, two thoughts occurred to me. First, that this game proved again why March Madness is the greatest sporting event on the planet. And second, that Phillips is exactly NOT who the Cougars need as their next basketball coach.
((HT: NCAA March Madness/Snappy TV))An absolutely electric shooting performance in the first three-quarters of the game kept Summit League champ North Dakota State at bay against Oklahoma. But the Sooners came back and took the lead before NDSU scored on a three late in regulation from Lawrence Alexander...That meant only one thing involving the best shooting team in the country...
