MSU Dome hosts Special Olympics ND State Basketball Tournament
Special Olympics North Dakota's State Basketball Tournament is descending on the Minot State Dome Friday night and Saturday. The lineup is 450 players strong and fun for everyone.
"This weekend, I want to win the gold and be the best team in state. It's going to take defense, rebounding, scoring, everything," said Jon Dally, Jamestown Wizard.
"I look forward to it. I like playing basketball. I enjoy it a lot, just working together, being a team, helping each other out," said Shannon Priewe, Jamestown Wizard.
"I just love working with these guys. They brighten up my day and make me feel like this is what I want to do with my career, so they really help me," said Wizards Coach Eric Besalda.
Besalda is a Minot State football player and added a coaching minor to his academic career after helping with the tournament as a volunteer.
