North Dakota closely trailed the Bulldogs during the first half finishing just one point behind with a score of 35-34. Drake opened the game with a 6-0 run over 1:43, which North Dakota matched with a 6-0 run over 4:20 to close out the half. The Bulldogs lost the lead during the third period as UND pulled ahead. However, the Bulldogs kept their deficit to one possession and managed to tie it up at 50 going into the final quarter, due to a three pointer by freshman Sammie Bachrodt (Wichita, Kan.), who finished with seven point in addition to three rebounds, and a layup by sophomore Maddy Dean (Jordan, Minn.) who finished with 13 points, six rebounds and two assists. “I really think the big one today was Bachrodt who did some really great things from the defensive end. I don’t think the Knapp Center has ever been so excited as when she hit that three-pointer. Her hustle play today was really great,” said Drake head coach Jennie Baranczyk. Drake finally found their rhythm during the fourth period, pulling ahead of UND to finish the game. As a team, the Bulldogs struggled from beyond the arc, but finished shooting 41.2 percent (28-68) from the field, scoring 40 points within the paint and eight fast break points. Drake forced 20 turnovers, scoring 17 points off of those chances and only turned the ball over eight times. Junior Lizzy Wendell (Blue Springs, Mo.) led the Bulldogs with a game-high of 18 points in addition to five rebounds. “We have talked a lot about rebounding and boxing out as our main focus going into this game,” Dean said. “Rebounding is definitely something we have been focusing on all season and it is something we really want to be great at.” UND’s Mia Loyd held a game-high of 11 rebounds along with 15 points. North Dakota benefited from 16 second chance points coming off of 22 offensive rebounds, compared to Drake’s zero second chance points and nine offensive boards.”I love our non-conference schedule,” Baranczyk said. “We have opened with different teams who all have different looks and those games have helped expose the areas we want to get better at.” The Bulldogs have a quick turnaround as they take on Creighton Tuesday, Nov. 24 at the Knapp Center at 7 p.m. Print Friendly Version Creighton 11/24/2015 – 7:00 PM Bos Score (HTML) Next Game:
The cost and benefits of territorial tenure, and factors affecting mating success in male Antarctic fur seals
The timing, location and duration of territorial tenure, and the mating success and return rates of male Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella) were measured over four consecutive breeding seasons (1984–87) on Bird Island (54°00’S, 38°02’W), South Georgia. Tenure duration (days) followed a heavily skewed, Poisson-like distribution (median 13.08 days, maximum 75 days) and was positively related to the number of years of tenure (rs= 0.52, P 0.7) or to the level of mating success in the current year (P > 0.15). It was, however, positively related to the duration of tenure in the current year (P < 0.0001). The overall annual return rate was 43% which is not significantly different from the survival rate for the general male population and suggests that territorial tenure does not contribute to increased mortality in male Antarctic fur seals.
