University of North Dakota men's basketball players Mike Mathiason and Nick Haugen will appear on tonight's episode on the Animal Planet's Hillbilly Handfishin'.

Mathison and Haugen made it through a casting call with producers and were selected to spend a week in southern Oklahoma learning the practice of noodling or as the locals call it 'hillbilly handfishin'.

The hour-long episode follows teams as they fish for catfish using their hands and feet.

Who did better during the show? Well that depends on who you ask.

"I did," Mathiason said confidently.

"I don't know about that," Haugen added.

"I guess we'll just have to watch the episode and see," Mathiason replied.

The show can be viewed on Animal Planet (channel 42 in Grand Forks) at 9 p.m.
