North Dakota coasted to a 95-72 victory over Portland St., as they move on to the semifinal round of the Big Sky Conference Tournament in men’s basketball.

Corey Baldwin scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and added 5 assists to lead the Fighting Hawks charge to get one step closer to their first appearance in the Division I NCAA Tournament.

Quinton Hooker added 17 points for North Dakota (20-9), and six players total finished with double figures in scoring to lead the onslaught.

After going up 7-4 in the early going, it was all UND. The Fighting Hawks finished 11 of 20 from 3-point range (six of those from Baldwin) and shot 56 percent for the game.

UND now advances to take on Idaho in the seminfinal round. The Idaho Vandals outlasted Montana, 81-77 last night.

North Dakota will take on Iowa tonight at 5:35 p.m. The winner of that game will play the winner of Eastern Washington vs. Weber St.
