Davey Richman Has the Tools, Now Make the Moves

Five days ago ESPN Staff Writer Myron Medcalf wrote an article reviewing who has the best job in every state for men’s college basketball.

You can find the 2,284-word article here.

With no surprises at all, Davey Richman, North Dakota State men’s basketball coach was dubbed to have the best job in North Dakota for college basketball coaches.

Medcalf wrote, “Coach David Richman has access to the new $50 million Sanford Health Athletic Complex, which opened last year. It’s a gem few programs outside the Power 5 can match.”

The Sanford Health Athletic Complex (SHAC) is a gorgeous facility and most universities in North Dakota can’t compete with a $50 million building.

I mean look at some of these other gyms in North Dakota. Fuckn awful with a capital A.

And there is no reason for me to show you the gymnasiums of the NAIA or NJCAA schools or the NCCAA school.

NDSU Basketball Twitter account tweeted this out after the Medcalf article was posted:

Is life as a Bison good? I’m not entirely sure. A few months ago starting point guard Khy Kabellis announced he was transferring from NDSU.

That $50 million facility sure couldn’t keep a guy that started all 30 games his sophomore year and averaged 11.2 points per game and 33.2 minutes per game in Fargo.

Richman has all the tools but now he has to get the student-athletes. And yes maybe they will come. There might be student-athletes who never thought about NDSU before but decide to take a visit because of the new gym. Only time will tell.

This gym is badass. One of the best I’ve ever been in but if the Bison don’t produce a good product on the court it doesn’t matter how much your fancy facility costs.
