One year ago, Sam Griesel was playing in gyms around Lincoln as a member of the East Spartans. Now, he's about to play in the NCAA Tournament. Griesel and NDSU are set to appear in the NCAA First Four in Dayton, Ohio on Wednesday. The Bison play North Carolina Central at 5:40pm on truTV.
As a freshman, Griesel has started 20 times for NDSU. The 6-foot, 6-inch guard/forward averages 6 points and 4 rebounds per game.
