SIOUX FALLS – The Northern State men’s basketball team is back in familiar territory following an 72-63 win over Minot State in the semifinals of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference tournament at the Sanford Pentagon on Saturday.

The Wolves took control of the game late in the opening half and never trailed after that. Parker Fox had three straight electrifying slam dunks to fuel the surge.

Mason Stark led the Wolves (17-1) with 22 points.

Northern will try to win its fourth-straight NSIC tournament championship at 4 p.m. today when they face Minnesota State Moorhead. The Dragons handed NSU its only setback of the season.
