Notes: The Falcons will continue their four-game road trip against North Dakota, a team which has lost six of its last seven games, five of which were on the road. … The team formerly was known as the Fighting Sioux, a nickname that was dropped before this season began after two-thirds of the state’s residents voted to discontinue a nickname considered offensive to Native Americans. The school will not have a nickname until 2015. … North Dakota is in its first season in the Big Sky Conference after playing in the Great West Conference. … North Dakota played in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament each of the previous two seasons. … Junior Aaron Anderson leads the team in scoring (12.6), while junior guard Troy Huff, a two-time All-Great West pick, looks to return to the lineup following an early-season jaw injury. … The Falcons are looking to bounce back after a triple-overtime loss at South Florida. BG had not played a triple-overtime game since suffering a 91-88 loss in at Ball State on Jan. 29, 1992.
