Askvig averaged 11.7 pts and 7.7 rebounds in seven games against Minot State.

“I wanted to go out with a bang and I wanted to have everyone remember that I’m from here. It was different but it was fun and I was more excited than usual,” says Askvig.

Curtis Askvig, Cassie’s father says he has mixed emotions about seeing his daughter’s final college game in Minot.

“It’s bittersweet because she’s played from high school, state tournaments and now her fourth year playing here. it’s nice to get a victory because shes had a tough time playing at the dome,” says Curtis Askvig, Cassie’s Father.

Mr. Askvig adds its always great when his daughter comes in town to play and he is so proud of Cassie.

“When all my family comes its a lot of fun and I really appreciate it and I’m really thankful for that,” says Cassie Askvig.
