Students stranded by snow in Summit, SD After the UND men’s hockey team skated to a win against its opponent in Omaha, fans who rode the school fan bus down to the game didn’t quite manage to skate home. More than 50 fans were stranded in Summit, S.D., until Monday night, after the roads became too snowy for travel. The community of Summit welcomed the fans with open arms, lending the city community center as a make-shift resting place, bringing them food and opening the bar across the street to help them pass the time.

Senate passes bills to increase efficiency DS takes CHANGE Members of Senate discuss alterations to elected official transition time. KAITLIN BEZDICEK THEDAKOTASTUDENT

Student senators passed two bills Sunday evening aimed at improving the efficiency of Student Government.

With student body general elections less than a month away, senators voted to lengthen the transition time of the senate, president-elect and vice president-elect through a measure that will be placed on the election ballot in March. In the current process, new students are elected to senate and executive positions in early March and begin the transition into their newly won seats early April. Senate bill 1213-33 aims

to postpone this transition and extend the term of the incumbent officeholders. “The idea behind changing the transition date is to allow the newly elected people more time to get used to what they will be doing and work with current members to finish up work that they might want to do,” Student Body Vice President Eric Watne said. For this specific year, the change would benefit both the

senate and executive members working with the state legislative session that is projected to last into April, according to Stu Gov staff. Extending the term to the full academic year allows these students to finish their work in Bismarck. This also would apply to future students serving during legislative years. The bill also would allow the student fee

in its second year, we want to make sure people are informed and not afraid to get tested for sexually transmitted diseases,” Black Student Association President Yolanda Cox said. “We want people to go to their local health places. At UND’s Student Health Center, you can get your results in 20 minutes.” According to Cox, AfricanAmericans have the fastest growing rate of people affected by HIV and AIDS. Forty percent of said cases are female. But the event pushed the knowledge that anyone, no matter what race or gender, can be affected by the diseases. “We feel that the Multicultural Center has a responsibility to inform all people,” Cox said. “There’s a lot of promiscuity around campus. If you’re going to be out having sex, you need to take care of yourself.”

Cox, along with the Director of Multicultural Student Services, Malika Carter organized the event. “It’s important to celebrate the life of these people and celebrate that we’re closer to a cure,” Carter said.

By the numbers

The Multicultural Center hosted a presentation early Thursday with a peer educator who highlighted statistics about HIV and AIDS. An estimated 21,854 African-Americans were diagnosed with HIV in 2010, and another 16,188 were diagnosed with AIDS. These figures were nearly double the population of Caucasians who were diagnosed with each disease. “It’s about your own personal health. You need to think about the long-term consequences,” Cox said. According to Carter, these are just some of the historical and contemporary issues falling on African-Americans. She add-

To improve next year’s event and raise more awareness, Carter is planning to partner with offcampus sources in the Grand Forks community and beyond. “We had a full house last year, but less people this year, maybe because of the cold weather,” Carter said. “People came in and out, just not in a conglomerate.”

THEDAKOTASTUDENT

Women have worked hard to earn their rights for years. Yet there is still work to be done — especially close to home — as North Dakota has been named one of the worst places for women to live, according to “The Worst State for Women?” by Amanda Marcotte. According to the article, legislators are now trying to create a law in an attempt to shut down the Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo, the only clinic in the state that provides “high-quality affordable abortion and family planning services,” according to the clinic’s website. Shutting down the Red River Women’s Clinic would unnecessarily burden women across the state. Doctors working at the Red River Women’s Clinic travel from out of state to see patients and don’t have privileges to admit patients to local hospitals. The law members of the state legislature are considering would require the clinic to only employ doctors who have these privileges

to admit patients to local hospitals. The clinic employs doctors from out of town to keep them from being the subjects of harassment by the local people. Since doctors do not want to put themselves in the situation of having to deal with harassment at their own homes, the clinic would have a hard time finding doctors to work for it if it wasn’t able to look out-

side of the immediate area. If the legislature passes the law, it is likely the clinic would have to shut down, cutting off access to abortion in the entire state of North Dakota. Marcotte states in her article that the bill before the legislature would serve to protect women’s safety. I don’t believe it. As long as the clinic has been operating, it has not faced issues with employing out of state doctors. Instead, I believe the motivation behind this bill is to shut down the Red River Women’s Clinic, set-

ting women in the state back to times before Roe v. Wade. Passing this bill will also put more people in danger that could possibly protected by passing the bill. Before Roe v. Wade was passed, many women still found ways to get an abortion. However, these ways were by no means safe and often times lead to death If this law was to pass and the clinic did eventually have to shut down, the same thing could happen again. Without any other option available for women, eliminating the state’s only abortion clinic could also lead to children being born into households where they would not be taken care of. These are things the legislators are neglecting if they pass this law. Women deserve the right to choose — our bodies are something we are in control of and not the government. The Red River Valley Clinic not only allows young women who know they will not be able to take care of a child to get help, but it also helps women who are put in danger by their pregnancy or who have been raped. By taking away the right to choose from women, North Dakota takes away their equality. If that is taken away, what’s next? Sam Gaspardo is a staff writer for The Dakota Student.

This weekend, students struggled to return to campus as snow blasted the Midwest while ice and snow coated the interstates and highways leading back to Grand Forks and the comforts of campus. More than 50 students who traveled to Omaha to support UND’s men’s hockey team found themselves stranded in a gymnasium in Summit, S.D., unable to venture on because of the dangerous roads. Members of The Dakota Student staff who were attending the American College Press Best of the Midwest convention in Minneapolis were stuck in their hotel room for an extra day waiting for the roads to reopen. Students who had gone home for the weekend found themselves spending some extra time with their families as snow danced in the wind outside. And yet UND remained open, pushing the start of the day back a measly two hours. Administrators, faculty and staff were all aware of the weather and road conditions, as were the parents who made anxious calls to students who had decided to brave the roads to make it back for class. Administrators at NDSU made the decision to cancel classes for the day, putting student safety ahead of any other factors. So why didn’t the administration at UND? Allowing classes to continue with only slight delay was a highly irresponsible move on the university administration’s behalf. Refusing to cancel classes forced students, professors and staff to venture out into bad weather to get to class, risking their well being, simply to occupy classroom space for a 50-minute lecture. There is a point when individual lives must take precedence over exams, learning and even an entire institution. The students of UND rely on campus officials to recognize this tipping point and make the decision to do what is best for the individuals on campus. They didn’t. Instead, that difficult decision was left up to students and professors — the decision to either remain in the safety of their residence hall rooms, apartments or homes or to venture out into a winter storm severe enough to be named by the Grand Forks Herald and The Weather Channel. The decision should not have been left up to individuals. We at The Dakota Student can only hope that the next time a storm ravages the plains and student safety is called into question, the university will give more weight to the risks to the well being of those who call UND home. After all, what good is getting accepted to college if you don’t make it to graduation day?

2013 albums may hit sweet and sour notes MUSIC Five albums scheduled for 2013 release that could great potential. Brandon Becker THEDAKOTASTUDENT

More than a month deep into 2013, the music world has already come out with big, new albums. Tegan and Sara dropped their latest work last week to positive reviews and My Bloody Valentine put out their first album since 1991’s “Loveless;” and it doesn’t look like the music world will be slowing down anytime soon. Yet with all this anticipation, some tracks are sure to fall flat. Let’s take a look at some of the most anticipated albums of 2013 and evaluate whether or not they will hit the right note.

David Bowie, Next Day”

“The

The iconic singer hasn’t released an album in nine-plus years, but all that will change in March to the surprise of those who figured his lack of public appearances and album releases

meant he had hung up the towel. Producer Tony Visconti and Bowie secretly recorded his upcoming album over a two-year period, which is why it came as such a surprise when the announcement came he would have an album out this year. With such a long layoff, there are sure to be high hopes that Bowie can deliver another gem. This could very well be the last set of new material we get from him, and I expect a quality album, although it will be hard to reach the expectations longtime fans are sure to have.

Beyonce, “Untitled”

I’m personally not a fan of the singer, but I am in the minority. Beyonce killed it at the Super Bowl halftime show, has an HBO documentary set to drop this year and a new album rumored to come out in April. If you don’t like the singer, you may want to find a cozy cave to live in because she will be everywhere this year. This will be her fifth studio album since going the solo route. Although she’s never received widespread critical acclaim, her highest score on Metacritic, a site

that compiles reviews from all over and assigns a score to them, is a 73 she’s a hit with the masses. It’s hard to see Beyonce releasing something that the public doesn’t eat up. The ladies love her; the guys love her. So, why don’t I love her? Something must be wrong with me.

Arcade Fire, “Untitled”

Preparation makes all the difference in job hunting EXPERIENCE Students can gain valuable insight by listening to professionals in the field. Adam Christianson THEDAKOTASTUDENT

Almost every college student wonders if the education they are getting will adequately prepare them for their chosen career path. The difference between what we learn in a lecture hall and what we need to learn to make decisions on the job can be totally different. There is also an experience gap to overcome while trying to acquire a job. However, getting advice from professionals already in the field can help offset some disadvantages. Last Tuesday, the new Gorecki Alumni Center hosted the latest program in the Hultberg Lectureship series. The series consists of successful UND alumnae returning to speak and answer questions students may have about the job market and give realistic career advice. For a student looking to enter the job market, advice from a professional is invaluable. During the lecture Tuesday night, there was a lot of focus on the experience gap graduating students must overcome when starting their careers. If businesses are looking for potential employees with experience, how are freshly graduated students expected to find a job? A few tips given at the event were fairly common sense such as dressing

and acting the part. Being young and inexperienced is difficult, but looking and acting professionally helps to mitigate this problem. However, there were two main concepts that really resonated with me. The first was that when interviewing for a job, the candidate should not explain to the interviewer how he or she can change the way a company operates if he or she is hired. Employers don’t need to hear someone with less experience express

Academics cannot replace advice from professionals... Adam Christianson staff writer how he or she can do things better than what the company is already doing. The idea comes off as arrogant and naïve. Why should an employer take advice from one seemingly arrogant potential employee who will not listen when another expresses their eagerness to learn and adapt? The second concept involves job preparation. Speaker Shawn Deisz expressed her opinion that it is very rare for a freshly graduated job applicant to get their dream job right away. According to Deisz, the key is to continually prepare and acquire skills so, when the opportunity presents

itself, the applicant already has the skills needed to take on new responsibilities. Preparation can take the form of holding different jobs to gain experience. These jobs can act as stepping stones to a final goal. A company will not hire someone who lacks skills another applicant already has acquired. It is an obvious statement reinforcing how vital the continuous learning process is. Jules Kotrba, UND marketing graduate, works as a senior business partner for the Target Corporation. As one of the speakers Tuesday, she used personal experience to demonstrate how taking extra time to gain new skills can pay off later on. As an undergraduate at UND, she took the opportunity to study abroad in China. That decision eventually allowed her to be hired by Target Corporation to work with international trade. For a university that prepares its students for the future, this type of event is critical. Academics cannot replace advice from professionals about what works and what does not. I hope that UND continues to bring successful alumni back to further educate students. My other hope is that more students see the value in attending these events. There is a lot to take away from successful people who invite students to learn what they have come to find out the hard way. Adam Christianson is a staff writer for The Dakota Student.

theirs. However, they remain relatively under the radar despite touring with U2, being involved with David Bowie and, well, winning a Grammy for Best Album. Expectations from the masses may not be there because the band doesn’t have a Top 40 sound, but critics and fans have recognized the band’s talent. Expect to get another quality 12 to 16 songs from Arcade Fire when the new album drops.

Lady Gaga, “Artpop”

Yes, she’s back. After a relatively quiet 2012, the eccentric and, at times, controversial pop singer will return to center stage. Will she continue her strange ways or will she let her music speak for itself? A betting man would definitely not go for the latter, although I’m holding out hope. As talented as Gaga is, the sideshow she brings with her detracts attention from her musical talent. The same person who sings about equality also is the person showed up to an award show in a dress made of meat. Still, album sales will be huge,

and our radio waves will be filled once again with Gaga. I’ll let you decide whether or not this is a good thing.

Justin Timberlake, “The 20/20 Experience” The most anticipated album to come out this year easily belongs to J.T. It’ll be a little over six years since the last album Timberlake released when his latest one hits shelves in March. Seeing how “FutureSex/LoveSounds” sold 10 million copies, I don’t even want to know what a six-year hiatus will do for his sales. Timberlake hasn’t been out of the spotlight during his musical hiatus either. In fact, he’s been anything but under the radar, staring in movies such as “Alpha Dog,” “Friends with Benefits,” Trouble with the Curve,” “The Social Network” and “Bad Teacher,” along with appearing in several others. It looks like it’s going to be another big year for a guy who always seems to be having big years. Brandon Becker is a staff writer for The Dakota Student.

Letter: Keep the awards coming Dear Editor, I had the distinct pleasure of traveling to the Associated College Press Best of the Midwest conference in Minneapolis, last weekend. I had the chance to catch up with a few of my former colleagues from The Dakota Student, which is always nice, but the main reason for my presence was to volunteer as an adviser to other college newspapers. I read more newspapers than I can count, and I am proud of where my alma mater stands next to their peers. Many of the other schools in attendance have great publications, and The Dakota Student could serve to learn a thing or two from them. However, it was the DS that stood out, taking second place in its division for Best in Show. I would like to send along my congratulations to your editorial staff, writers, photographers and business staff for continuing a 130-year-old tradition of excellence. The DS has been home to many literary greats across the country, and I hope that as you all move on to “the real world” after graduation, you take the lessons that you have learned so far and join some of the elite journalists in the world that are alumni of your paper. I do have a challenge,

though: Do not spend too much time patting yourselves on the back. Take the time to acknowledge your accomplishment, and get back to work. There are still plenty of stones left unturned on campus, and it is up to your writers and photographers to inform UND of what’s really happening on campus. Don’t be afraid to poke your noses where they might not belong, because that’s where some of the best — and most important — information is. Continue to reach out to the rest of campus when you are looking to add new members to your staff. Some of the better staff members have come from majors outside of communication or English. The different views an aviation student, science student or fine arts student could bring to the table are essential in your need to provide indepth coverage of all of UND’s happenings. Most of all, make sure you have fun. College is your last chance to have a safety net protect your actions, so be bold and push the envelope. There’s no point in doing what you’re doing unless you enjoy it. Again, congrats, and best of luck on the rest of the year. Robb Jeffries, class of 2012 Former Editor-in-Chief, The Dakota Student

“Instead of being thrown in at the end of the year, they can start fresh at the beginning of a new year,” he said. Though senators passed the bill with overwhelming support, the measure must be voted on by the student body in the general elections because it is a change to the constitution. Another move of efficiency came in the form of Senate Bill 1213-34. The bill would alter Student Government’s fiscal year to align with the university’s fiscal year. In the past, the fiscal year

sTORY BY REILLY ERTMAN In between sips of tea, activist Angela Davis offered encouraging and challenging words to a packed Chester Fritz Auditorium on Feb. 6. Davis came to Grand Forks to speak with UND Associate Professor of Counseling Tamba-Kuii Bailey for this year’s Great Conversation. “There can be joy in resistance; it can be pleasurable,” Davis said. “For that reason, I’ve been involved in these very simple movements.” These simple movements refer to her previous involvement in the Black Panther Party, her former involvement in the Communist Party, the 18 months she spent in solitary confinement and, most recently, the Occupy Movement. “We have a lot of work to do,” Davis said. “I would

urge all of us to try and imagine what it might be like 200 years from now if we do the work that we are supposed to today.” According to Davis, “now” refers to the imperfect state of the United States, a country where she said “racism is still such a powerful force in this society,” “capitalism still depends on racism and male supremacy” and “women are still viewed as less than men.” Referring to these problems, she addressed the audience. “This is not the way things are supposed to be (in the United States) and things will change,” Davis said. “Emancipation is an ongoing project.” Despite her track record as an activist, which included a spot on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list, Davis’ goal is simple.

“All of that relates to my efforts to make a difference in the world,” she said. More than 1,000 people came to hear the conversation. The lively, informal atmosphere was filled with frequent cheering, applause and whistling. Topics ranged from slavery to the prison system and poverty to the Occupy Movement. According to Davis, students play a vital role in activism. “In many radical movements around the world, students have played the decisive role,” she said. “Students should recognize how much they have and use it.” Her student-orientated message resounded with Melissa Quincer, a graduate student at UND. “The Great Conversation was super interesting,” she said. “I really liked how she ended discussing her vi-

sion for the future and our part.” Fellow grad student Lindsey Brinker concurred. “We are in position a lot of people don’t have,” she said. “We have the privilege and the power to make changes.

This is not the way things are supposed to be and things will change. Angela Davis activist Davis’ worst fear for the United States is historical amnesia. “Most people think that we are living the ‘dream,’ you know, Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream,” she said. “And I say, ‘what dream?’ “If we don’t come to grips with those histories,

there is no way we will be able to move in a progressive direction in the future. We may not achieve this in five years, 10 years, but if we don’t start now, we will go nowhere.” Bailey commented on Davis’ concept of historical amnesia. “She really challenged us to consider how the past has impacted us,” he said. Whether UND will fall victim to historical amnesia and forget Davis’ words or whether her visit has indeed left a lasting impact on UND is not yet clear, according to Bailey. “I hope students, faculty and staff don’t consider (her visit) an isolated event, that ‘she was here’ and then move on and her message remains,” he said.

Indulging international culture CELEBRATION Many countries represented at UND event dedicated to world cultures. JOY JACOBSON

THEDAKOTASTUDENT

After a year of preparation, the UND International Organization welcomed more than 1,000 people to the 51st Annual Feast of Nations Saturday. The red carpet rolled out at 5 p.m. at the Alerus Center Ballroom, surrounded by numerous cultural displays. More than 15 countries were represented, including India, Nepal, the Philippines, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and the United States, as well as Native American culture. “One of our main goals is to bridge the cultures,” Director of Humanites and Integrated Studies Tami Carmichael said. “It’s not just about bringing culture to Grand Forks, it’s about all of the cultures

here sharing their culture with each other.” According to Vice President of Student Affairs Lori Reesor, UND’s culture is one of its greatest assets. “We are so blessed to have so many students from other countries choose to study at UND,” Reesor said. A group of those students began dancing at 6 p.m. with “All Around the World.” The Rusalka Ukrainian Dance Ensemble was the feature performance and a favorite of many, including freshman Yeva Mirzovan. Mirzoyan, a first generation Armenian immigrant, said the dancers reminded her of home. She was five years old when her family moved to Minnesota. “It’s so nice to see other cultures,” Mirzoyan said. “I get a lot of my own culture at home, but it’s really cool that there’s a whole night devoted to it here.” Many varieties of song and dance filled the rest of the evening, along with some exotic foods. “Real cultural understanding can begin with the sharing of a

meal,” Carmichael said. The four-course dinner began with Vietnamese cold spring rolls and chili sauce, followed by Cuban black bean soup and corn bread. Guests had a choice for the main entrée between two dishes of Spanish cuisine: baked pasta Chicken Diablo or vegetarian roasted butternut squash pasta. Lamington, an Australian sponge cake coated in chocolate icing, was served for dessert. The UND International Organization’s Feast of Nations Committee is in charge of planning the entire event. The organization is composed of students from all over the world and advised by Carmichael and Joe Vacek. “Planning starts a year or more out,” Carmichael said. “It’s all student-coordinated and run.” The group meets every week to choose the performers, menu, location, décor, marketing and fundraising. “Our budget is somewhere in the neighborhood of $70,000 every year,” Carmichael said. “A good

chunk of that has to be raised by the students.” According to International Organization President Brooke Kubat, all of this hard work is more than worth it. “My experience at UND would not have been complete if I hadn’t decided to show up at an I.O. meeting three years ago,” Kubat said. The organization is open to all students on campus. “We’ve seen an uptake in students from the U.S. who want to get involved with our group,” Car-

michael said. The group also arranges events for international students to show them what the United States has to offer. “The students plan trips every year,” Carmichael said. “It’s done especially to provide an opportunity for students from other countries who are studying here to see other places in the U.S.” Joy Jacobson is a staff writer for The Dakota Student.

Documentarian heads west with faculty CAMPS Renowned photographer to observe oil fields with Caraher and Weber.

Sarah Erickson THEDAKOTASTUDENT

Before heading to the oil fields of western North Dakota, renowned documentary photographer Kyle

Cassidy made a stop at UND to share his work and discuss the process of effective visual storytelling. “We all have an innate desire to document,” Cassidy said. “I see my life, and I’m afraid it will pass by.”

Sharing the Experience Cassidy’s presentation, “People, Places and Things: Adventures in Documentary Photography,” took place at noon Friday in the Chester Fritz Library’s East Asia Room. In a slide show featuring a wide variety of photographs, Cassidy used his own work to describe the dynamics of visual storytelling, changes over the years in his field, and how to use these changes in effective research. “Learning these stories was extremely fascinating to me,” Cassidy said. “Photography is my own form of journalism.” A veteran photographer for more than 20 years, Cassidy has documented an assortment of topics, from mobsters to politicians, science fiction and poverty. Halfway through his slide show, Cassidy explained a special set of images. “I spent two years on the road and took photos of gun owners,” he said. “I wanted to hear people’s stories and share that experience.” In one photo sat a thin Asian man next to his ten pistols and rifles. More than 50 people attended the presentation with attendees ranging from students and professors to the general public.

Man camp research Cassidy’s next project, called

The North Dakota Man Camp Project,” will be a collaborative work with UND professors William Caraher and Bret Weber. “From the beginning this has been a multidisciplinary project that has included perspectives and expertise from social work, history and archaeology, and has brought in top researchers from around the country,” Weber, a social work professor, said. In October 2011, UND featured a lecture by Kostis Kourelis, an archeologist who discussed his findings of Byzantine remains at Corinth, Greece. As a result, UND got in touch with Cassidy, who was one of Kourelis’ colleagues. The project, which will contain both academic research and photo documentary, is pioneering research on the current special housing conditions for oil field workers. “North Dakota’s oil boom is a historically significant event that is having and will continue to have dramatic impacts on the state and its people,” Weber said. “One of the most critical contemporary issues is housing.” Weber already has done research on the impacts of the oil boom and has found most of the social impacts relate to housing. “We are interested in learning as much as possible about the material and social lives of those living in temporary worker housing known as ‘man camps,’” Weber said. For their study, housing communities examined will include “worker housing under that title, including institutional barrack-style housing, sprawling trailer parks and even the most ephemeral of camps that often exist in fields with no connection to water or sewage,” according to Weber. “We want to learn more about all of these man camps so that we can capture the story for future generations, and so that we can help policy makers make the best possible decisions in the present,” Weber said. Cassidy, Caraher and Weber plan on visiting North Dakota camps in a large arc from Stanley along Highway 2 south of Williston. From there, they will go back through Watford City and Fort Berthold.

Lamoureux secures league scoring title RECORD Six-assist game earns senior title of best-ever WCHA scorer. Elizabeth Erickson THEDAKOTASTUDENT

In Saturday’s battle against Bemidji State, senior forward Jocelyne Lamoureux claimed the title of alltime scoring leader in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association as her six assists allowed the team to cruise to a 7-0 victory over the Beavers at the Ralph Engelstad Arena. “You don’t go into your college career setting goals like that because a lot of that just depends on what kind of team you have and what kind of role you’re going to have every year,” Jocelyne Lamoureux said. “It’s a great accomplishment, but it was a better win for the team, and this weekend was huge that we got both wins. So, it was a good team win, and I thought we played really well tonight.” Megan Gilbert opened scoring for the team at one minute and forty-seven seconds of the first period, with a goal by Monique Lamoureux just minutes later.

Layla Marvin claimed her first collegiate goal at 8:17 of the second period. That goal also set the record claimed by Jocelyne Lamoureux. While controversy arose as to who would get to keep the game puck, it was Lamoureux who held on to it. Her assists on all but one goal allowed her to help showcase the team’s overall success. “It’s good in all and the individual stuff comes and goes,” Jocelyne Lamoureux said. “But last year I got a lot of individual accolades and it wears off pretty quick when you don’t win. So it’s good and all, but it’s the perspective you take on it. If we’re not winning, I could put up six points a game. But if we’re not winning, it really doesn’t matter. Something needs to change. So it’s just important that we’re getting the wins right now and hopefully we keep them coming.” Becca Kohler and Megan Dufault were added to the score sheet in the second period by way of goals, and Monique Lamoureux found the back of the next for the second time in the game. “It was nice this weekend, a lot of kids stepped up into different positions with missing some people,” UND coach Brian Idalski said. “And

it was nice to get a lot of different people on the score sheet and of course Jocelyne breaking the scoring record today and having six assists. (She) really distributed the puck and did a nice job all the way around for us, so that was great.” Michelle Karvinen scored the team’s seventh goal in the third period to seal the win Saturday after a close 4-3 battle Friday. “It was a big bounce-back win, and we weren’t happy with how we played yesterday,” Jocelyne Lamou-

Sweep in the sun SLUSH Thousands of fans enjoy weather, UND win in school’s first outdoor game. Elizabeth erickson THEDAKOTASTUDENT

As each player skated off the ice at T.D. in Ameritrade Park in Omaha, the North Dakota men’s hockey team was adorned with celebratory cheers and chants by hundreds of dedicated UND fans. After sealing a 5-2 victory over the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks, UND was able to claim all four points in a crucial WCHA matchup — and the fans’ long journey was all worth it, as their devotion rang louder than anything in the park. “Absolutely incredible,” UND freshman goaltender Zane Gothberg said. “It was something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life because it’s so hard to explain the amount of love and support that people have for this one common goal — one common goal for the University of North Dakota. It was absolutely remarkable.” In the program’s first ever outdoor game, green and white became the dominant colors in the stands among the 13,650 in attendance, proving the fans’ passion for the hockey program’s success.

“I couldn’t even believe it,” UND sophomore defenseman Nick Mattson said. “I was walking off and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. It just sums up my experience in Grand Forks in a nutshell. Fans were crazy, and I wouldn’t want to have them any other way.”

Unpredicted conditions After claiming a 2-1 win over Omaha indoors Friday night, Saturday’s anticipated battle would only become more anxiously awaited. Despite a two and a half hour delay due to deteriorating ice conditions from the sun’s wearing of the surface, the puck dropped at 6:35 after a long day for the ice crew at T.D. Ameritrade Park. What began as an ideal playing surface in the first period quickly worsened into a slushy mess deemed unsuitable for skating. The team was determined to maintain its concentration throughout the delay and prepared itself for the battle ahead. “We tried our best to stay focused and obviously these things happen,” UND sophomore forward Mark MacMillan said. “The weather is unpredictable and the sun was a little too much for the ice to handle. We went back to the hotel after we found out we’d be delayed for a little bit, packed our things up and tried to stay focused the whole time, getting ready to play for whenever we were going to.” In the opening period alone, it was clear who had control of the

game — and not only because of the ever present cheering from UND fans.

Early Success Just 10 minutes, 34 seconds into the first period, North Dakota scored three goals to take a dominant lead. The first goal came from UND freshman defenseman Jordan Schmaltz on a one-timer from the point to open scoring for the Green and White with the first shot of the game, on a power play. Nick Mattson continued the trend at 9:19 on a rebounded shot that was slapped in around Omaha goaltender John Faulkner. Scoring closed out in the first after a wraparound goal by Mitch MacMillan at 10:32 to put North Dakota up 3-0. “(We) really took advantage of our opportunities,” UND coach Dave Hakstol said. “We scored a power play goal on our first shot of the game but it was a real good power play goal, it was right up front. We were just able to build a lead from there, so it was really important in a game with ice conditions the way they were. I thought building the lead early was critical.” The lead held strong throughout the second with an additional goal by senior forward Corban

reux said. “We came out good the first five and didn’t do a whole lot after that, and it was a big bounce-back win for us and we’re already looking toward next week. It’s going to be big games. Ohio State’s a good team so we’ve got to be ready to go.” But with Jocelyne Lamoureux’s contributions ringing steady through the lineup, the team will have no problem with continuing to strive for success. “What a quality player she is,” Idalski said “And the fact that com-

ing back here and building a program. She could have gone anywhere she wanted to. And the fact that she chose to come back to take on, really a project, of making this a nationally ranked and a national championship caliber hockey program speaks a lot of the kind of person she is so that doesn’t happen very often.” Elizabeth Erickson is the web editor of The Dakota Student.

Mixed success for ladies at the Betty HOOPS UND tops Montana State, loses to Montana in secondto-last homestand. Mariah holland THEDAKOTASTUDENT

The UND women’s basketball team split against two Big Sky conference foes last week at the Betty Engelstad Center. North Dakota pulled off a 62-55 win Thursday against Montana State, but fell short Saturday with a 61-42 loss to Montana. “I think that we just came out and we actually played team basketball,” North Dakota senior Madi Buck said of Thursday’s game. “We switched up our defenses a little, and I think that really gave us a push.” UND jumped on the scoreboard early with a lead initiated on a two-point basket by Emily Evers. The advantage fluctuated throughout the first half, but the 16-minute mark brought Montana State into the lead, with UND on its heels. “We knew we had to make some adjustments, looked at film and all that stuff so that was

kind of our biggest thing,” Buck said. “We just needed to come together on offense, play good team basketball and just play solid defense.” UND’s Nicole Smart made a three-point basket to get her team back in the game and scored a total of 14 points in the contest. It was frequent fouls by the Bobcats that allowed North Dakota to climb points on the board, but the Bobcats held strong, ending the half with 2423 lead. The second half showed a stronger game for the Green and White as it took back the lead by capitalizing on free throws — making 22 of 26 free throw attempts in the game. Buck had a strong game in the final game of the homestand, leading the team with 19 points against the Grizzlies. Saturday’s game against top Big Sky foe Montana did not end on a high note, despite leading the first few minutes with a Buck basket and battling against a strong defense. UND struggled at the free throw line, going 16 for 27 at-

Knight on a tip of the puck into the net. In the third period, it was Omaha’s chance to create a turnaround as Josh Archibald capitalized on a power play opportunity to put the Mavericks on the scoreboard. Omaha continued its persistence with a second goal just minutes later to narrow the margin yet again. With minutes remaining on the clock, Knight’s feed to Kristo while skating down the neutral zone created a breakaway opportunity, allowing Kristo to shoot five-hole. The puck went in to seal a 5-2 victory.

Fans jumped from their seats while throwing their fists high in the air, in sync with a collective roar let out from the entire crowd.

Finishing Strong In defiance of delays and distractions, the team was able to focus on its ultimate goal and orchestrate success. And while the venue provided a new atmosphere, it prompted an adaptation that North Dakota could easily follow. “The cold was probably the least of the distractions today,” Hakstol said. “There was so many changes to the schedule and different things that were outside the control of our players and our program. “With that being said, I thought

we controlled the things that were within our control very well. We came out, we played well from the drop of the puck. We built an early lead and I think that was critical in today’s game.” A tight contention for points in the WCHA standings will remain for the duration of the season, but with the number of fans that made the trek to T.D. Ameritrade Park, the team is optimistic about its continued support. “Obviously, the amount of fans that made the trip is incredible in itself,” MacMillian said.

THEDAKOTASTUDENT

The men’s basketball team turned disappointing splits into a season habit when it turned in a third-straight weekend split, this time against Montana State and the Montana on Thursday and Saturday. The Green and White defeated home-standing Montana State Bobcats 82-73, followed by a 7858 loss to the Montana Grizzlies. The results mean UND remains at .500 in conference play at 7-7 while being tied for fourth place in the Big Sky. The win in Bozeman, Mont., Thursday night came to the Green and White after a night of rallying back from a double-digit deficit in the second half to pick up a much

needed conference win. The win was hard fought because of a shortage of players on the bench. “We only had nine guys dressed, but we got contributions from all over the place,” UND coach Brian Jones said. “Our bench was huge again.” Freshman guard Shane Benton was part of that “huge” bench play, scoring a career high 13 points and picking up three of UND’s 15 total steals, a season-high figure. North Dakota was not short on offense as junior guard Troy Huff scored a game-high 25 points against the Bobcats with junior guard Aaron Anderson following close behind with 17 and Jamal Webb with 12. Luck ran out Saturday night when the Green and White’s trip to Montana ended as the Grizzlies claimed a win. The blowout over North Dakota allowed the undefeated Grizzlies to retain a perfect record in the Big Sky this season (14-0) while setting a conference record for most consecutive conference wins (25). The Grizzlies were able to take advantage of North Dakota’s inability to control the ball, with UND committing 15 turnovers in the opening 20 minutes, helping Montana to a 40-21 lead after the first half. As a team, UND was unable to make shots in the first half, shooting just 9 of 23 from the floor. It was, however, able to gain offensive contributions from Troy Huff, who scored a game high 25 points, while Jamal Webb added 14 of his own in the loss. North Dakota’s shooting also was unable to keep pace with the Grizzlies who outshot North Dakota in field goals, three pointers and from behind the foul line. Shots from behind the three-point arc resulted in a dismal .182 percentage for the Green and White. North Dakota will battle Sacramento State Thursday at the Betty Engelstad Arena.

The second half started with North Dakota looking strong, but the Green and White could not turn around the score and allowed Montana to capitalize on more than one mistake. Late in the game, a play came under review gave UND possession and two free throw attempts. The Grizzly technical foul gave North Dakota some momentum, but they couldn’t keep going. With the win, Montana im-
