Valley City State University womens basketball coach Jill DeVries has seen the difference a good fan base can make.
"It was very evident a couple of years ago, when we had a full house for the Jamestown game, the difference the crowd can have in a game," DeVries said. "Even when we've been on the road at places like Dordt, they just have an outstanding student following.
"The environment can be such a game changer."
It's a culture that has always been at VCSU for games against rivals like Jamestown College, but otherwise left a frequently quiet crowd.
