UND basketball adds two
GRAND FORKS—The University of North Dakota men's basketball program has started to test the international waters by announcing on Thursday, July 19, the addition of two foreign players to the roster for the 2018-19 season, including the son of a former NBA player.
UND has added Davids Atelbauers and Filip Rebraca, resulting in three European additions during this off season. They join France's Marko Coudreau who signed in May. (GFH)
Vikings games blocked?
When it comes to the people of Wisconsin, two things are clear: they love their Green Bay Packers football and they despise the Minnesota Vikings.
So much so, that Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) introduced a piece of legislation Wednesday, July 18, called the "Go Pack Go Act," which would make all counties in the state of Wisconsin a Packers-first television viewing audience.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "the Go Pack Go Act would require cable, satellite and other TV providers to give customers in Wisconsin access to programming within their home state." (FNS)
