The North Dakota State Bison could be without a key contributor during their Summit League championship game on Tuesday night against the North Dakota Fighting Hawks. Sophomore guard Tyree Eady is questionable for the final game with a concussion.
Eady suffered the injury during the regular season finale victory over Omaha and missed the first two Summit League tournament games for the Bison. Eady is averaging 25.5 minutes per game with 6.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists this season.
North Dakota State earned the benefit of a few upsets in the earlier rounds of the Summit League tournament as the Bison will be matched up with the conference’s No. 6 seed North Dakota. The two split the season series with North Dakota getting a 71-68 victory on Feb. 22 to snap the Bison’s seven-game winning streak. Eady started that game and finished with five points and six rebounds. Since the loss, North Dakota State won four straight to reach the conference title game.
North Dakota State is a six-point underdog, according to various oddsmakers. North Dakota is a 11-19 against the spread this season, but the Fighting Hawks covered in four of their last five games. North Dakota State won 11 of its last 12 straight up and come into this one 15-14-1 against the spread this season.
