    Default Womens BB New beginning

    There was a tweet from NDSU Womens Basketball that the NDSU women were now practicing for the 1st season under
    new head coach Jory Collins.

    Also saw a tweet looking for Mens basketball players to practice against the womens team.
    Pretty sure this is very common.

    Go Bison!!
    The new beginning!!!

    women during her era also.

    Why are they specifying a gender identity for practice partners? Will there be a "gender test' before practice begins? Simply barbaric.

    I know a guy that used to practice against the Lynx, and Pat Summit had men practice against her teams as well. I thought it was standard.
    Some say it's a backward place. Narrow minds on a narrow way, but I make it a point to say. That that's where I come from.

    The women have used men for practice for years.

    I doubt there are too many females on campus who aren't already on the team that would be competitive. They're trying to improve by playing against better athletes. Very common practice.

    Good for you. You can probably help them out in that case. In general, however, I don't think they can find enough women that can present a challenge to those on the squad and that's why they reach out to guys on campus.
