OGDEN, Utah - The North Dakota men's basketball team is back in the Big Sky Tournament semifinals for the second straight year and looking to get one step closer to program history. The first hurdle to clear will be the fifth-seeded Portland State Vikings, who pulled off a minor upset yesterday, defeating two-time defending champion Montana.

UND earned its way into the semifinals by defeating seventh-seeded Sacramento State 79-76 in what was a highly-entertaining opener to this three-day event at the Dee Events Center.

A quartet of seniors reached double figures with Troy Huff leading that group with 18 points. Aaron Anderson had 14 of his 16 points in the second half to help erase what was a seven-point deficit after the break. Alonzo Traylor and Josh Schuler each added 11 points in the victory.
