33 Chad Calcaterra 6-9 Jr. 3.0

Quick hits: Aaron Anderson had a game-high 23 points in 25 minutes of action in the Fighting Sioux's season-opener against Minnesota Morris on Wednesday….Troy Huff led the Big Sky in scoring last season and scored 18 on Wednesday night….The Big Sky coaches pegged North Dakota to finish second in the conference in a preseason poll….North Dakota has not faced a ranked opponent since December 31, 2011 when they lost 84-58 at No. 17 Kansas.

Why you should worry: The Fighting Sioux put up 110 points in their season opener against Minnesota Morris on the backs of five players who were in double figures…Troy Huff scored 21 points off the bench as a freshman in 2010 against the Badgers.

Why you shouldn't worry: The Badgers are 84-4 at home against unranked non-conference opponents in the Bo Ryan era, allowing just 52.0 points per game and winning by an average of 23.6 points….The tallest player North Dakota has on its roster is 6-foot-9 junior center Ryan Salmonson so Frank Kaminsky should have a big advantage down low.
