The hope for the North Dakota State women’s basketball team on Thursday was to make Emily Dietz’s 100th career start something of a celebration. She has already reached 1,000 career points and is only the third player in the Division I era to top 600 rebounds.

What’s probably more impressive is that she played 102 consecutive games, a statistical marvel in the age of COVID-19 protocols. So far, she has survived two consecutive years.

“I’m getting older, but I still love him,” Dietz said. “It’s been a blessing.”

Kansas City crashed the party. The Roos were the best team in the fourth quarter to earn a 67-62 Summit League win at the Scheels Center at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex.

Summary of the women’s match here:

North Dakota State went through a nearly eight-minute second-half scoreless streak and a comfortable lead crumbled in an 80-77 loss at Kansas City on Thursday night.

NDSU’s Boden Skunberg hit a 3-pointer that put the Bison ahead 57-43 with 13:08 left in the game. They didn’t score again until Rocky Kreuser’s lay-up with about five minutes left broke a 21-0 run from Roos.

Kolpack: ND State vs. Ellendale Country Club

The voice on the other end of the line was filled with frustration, it was obvious. Doug Burkhardt appeared to be out of breath defending his home course, the Ellendale Country Club, located south of the small town of Ellendale, ND

Like many 9-hole courses in this state, the place is run primarily out of a love of the game and countless volunteer hours, mostly from its board of directors. It’s not really a country club, of course, in the Fargo and Moorhead sense. Membership is not required.

The Fargo Country Club has a Chief Professional, Director of Instruction, Chief Groundsman, General Manager, adequate staff, and an affiliation with its parent company, Troon Golf LLC, which carries a national brand.

Ellendale has a clubhouse manager and a greenskeeper.

It’s American. The same scene can be seen in countless small towns in North Dakota. The long, hard winter that turns into a messy spring is finally coming to an end. It’s time to get out and play.

The problem for Ellendale is that things are messy on a right-of-way pad between Highway 281 and the golf course. The boundary was approved by Duane L. Meiers, “right-of-way engineer” for the North Dakota Department of Transportation, on February 27, 1962. Yes, 1962.
