After dropping a heartbreaker in a loss to Tribes, Williston State is back home at The Well looking to avoid the regular season sweep against BSC.
The second game of the Teton-Mystics double header will tip off at 7:30 pm CST.
The men's teams for the Tetons and Tribes have already met twice this season, once in Parshall, and the other in Bismarck. Both games were competitive with the Mystics taking late leads to send Williston State Home

The Mystics are scoring 77.3 points per game on the season, while shooting 49.1% from the field and 38% from deep.
Jaden Hamilton leads the team in scoring with 14.8 points per game with Deonte` Martinez (13.8 ppg), and Anthony Bertucci (11.1 ppg) are also averaging double digits.
Williston State comes into the season with a 4-17 record overall in the season an 2-12 in the Mon-Dak Conference. The Tetons are averaging 64.7 points per game this season while shooting 38.9% from the field and 28% from the perimeter.

Three Things to Watch for:
1. Takeaways: Williston State has done a tremendous job defensively over the last couple of weeks picking the pocket of defenders and getting out into transition. If they are able to do that early to Bismarck State, they could cause the Mystics to become frustrated and commit unforced errors.
2. Block Party: Moses Gordon has been explosive on both ends of the floor, but especially defensively. Against tribes he had jaw dropping blocks that were huge momentum shifters that excited his teammates and delighted the fans. His athleticism can be a huge game changer tonight.
3. Keeping Your Nose Clean: The Tetons have ran into foul trouble as of late, which is something they can ill afford when the season is dwindling own. Adedo had to miss a significant amount of action against Tribes after picking up his fourth with over 17 minutes left in the 2nd half. Bismarck State has also let their frustration boil over at times, something Coach Herman has done a stellar job of throughout the season regardless of circumstance.
