The Minot State Beavers hosted South West Minnesota State in a game that went down to the wire. The Beavers came out on top with a 66-61 win to start the season 1-0.

The Marauders went on the road to face the University of Sioux Falls for their season opener. The Marauders trailed 41-28 at the half, but put together a solid second half effort.

The Marauders were led by Matthew Kreklow who scored a team high 24 points, and earned his 1,000th career point.

The Marauders second half comeback was not enough as they fell 64-60 to open the season 0-1.
