The North Dakota State Bison's magical NCAA Tournament run ended Saturday (March 22), losing 63-44 in the 3rd round to San Diego State.

After the loss, coach Saul Phillips and players Taylor Braun, Kory Brown, and Marshall Bjorklund gave a very emotional press conference. This loss marked the final game in an NDSU uniform for both Braun and Bjorklund, who are seniors.

Brown led the Bison with 13 points and four rebounds. Bjorklund added eight points in a losing effort.
