    I thought one of the reasons the tournament was moved to Sioux Falls was so there could be good streaming coverage? It has been painful to watch all weekend and now the video won't play at all.
    If your can watch it in Roku. Works great.

    • Since my UMARY season of cheering is over, I have to give my prediction for tomorrow’s semifinals! Tough to see Northern beating Moorhead, as a key piece from Northern in Gus Reede isn’t getting the time he deserves. Local guard who can fill it up. Think Moorhead will play with pace and try to outscore the Wolves. Should be fun to watch. Prediction is MSUM over Norther 87-80

        I've had a lot of fingers pointed at me over the years. I thought they meant I was #1 but it was the wrong finger.

          Interesting take.

            Always knew Umary had some very intelligent fans. Will take as many as possible jumping onto the dragon bandwagon...lord knows we will be outnumbered 50:1 in the arena tomorrow. Hope you are right, but not sure I see the dragons scoring that many against a pretty good and long defense in Nsu. Keep the positive vibes coming...will need all we can get.

            • I take back my earlier prediction. Northern wins 84-78. Mason Stark will go 14/15 from the field and have 34 points. Kid can’t miss

              • NSIC Men’s Predictions for tomorrow

                Northern State 82 Moorhead 72

                Duluth 74 Mankato 58

                Northern just has to much offensive fire power for Moorhead to handle the entire game lead by Stark and Fox... Baumgartner and Beeninga are solid for Moorhead but Northern is just too much
                Duluth led by Myer will over take Kirksey bc Kirksey doesn’t care anymore and looks like he wants to be done... also don’t sleep on Drew Blair as I could see a huge game out of him tomorrow

                  I agree this is the conventional wisdom, BUT they call it March Madness for a reason. The law of averages suggest Stark is due for an off game (which would still be a good game by most player’s standards). Stark can’t make everything he looks at every game....can he? Parker ft shooting down the stretch could be a problem for wolves. Northern is best team in tournament (as they clearly proved during the regular season), but Moorhead has played very well for the past two months (except for one or two games) and flying a bit under the radar, in my very biased opinion. My most heartfelt good luck to nsu4life prior to the game, maybe your boss woke up on the right side of the bed today and he will let you catch a quick late lunch to watch the second half!

                  Expecting good games...

                  Moorhead 74 Northern 72

                  Duluth 77 Mankato 75

                  Duluth should absolutely be 0-2 in nsic tourney, but their seniors refuse to lose. They maybe running out of luck, but I will save that prediction for their loss in championship game.

                    I tried everyone of the troubleshooting tips. It was still awful on any of my devices. Just kind of sad that we were told this move to Sioux Falls would be the fix-all for everything and it is no better than before! :)

                      There was one part left off the FAQs:
                      Get faster internet :)

                        No better than before..?

                        I may have missed something previous to this....but are you using a Roku device (to watch on a TV) or no? I had a bit of trouble with the feed being slow moving last night on the Midco feed (through my Roku), but I watched other portions (while attending a bit Saturday as well)....and I wasn't seeing issues with their coverage/stream. The way Midco covers the games, interviews the players and coaches....it's pretty top notch for D2 athletics. I'd be shocked if the other conferences in the region are providing that level of high production value..multi-camera professional quality video/audio with the other bells and whistles.

                        When attending games it feels like a big time environment..with the light show and replay screens and the way the arena is appointed. It feels like a big deal for the players and teams..and they all talk about how they look forward to playing at the Pentagon. So....I'd say the tourney being there and the coverage is some of the best in the D2 world. Just my take as a casual viewer.

                          If there is faster internet out there, I am not sure who offers it! I pay so much each month it better be the fastest available!

                            There are some positives. And overall, the MidCo presentation is good. But they can be so insufferably pro-Sioux Falls teams it's tough to listen to at times.

                                You've gotta be happy Augie is trying to go D1, right? I'm asking legitimately, not sarcastically.
