The UND women's basketball team had a split at home this past Thursday and Saturday.

The Fighting Hawks defeated a tough Weber State team and were beat by Idaho State.

The game against the Bengals, UND was a little shorthanded.

The Fighting Hawks were without one of their best players in Fallyn Freije who went out of the Weber State game with an injury and didn't play on Saturday.

She is questionable for this upcoming road trip and the team hopes to get her back on the court as soon as possible.

UND hits the road this week. The Fighting Hawks will play Southern Utah on Thursday and Northernn Arizona on Saturday.
