Once in a while, a team will play a game in which key points are decided on free throws.
But at times in the foul-heavy second half of the Valley City State University womens basketball team's 64-58 win over South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Saturday at W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, the charity stripe seemed to be the primary method of scoring.
The two teams combined for 45 free throw attempts in the half alone, with the Vikings getting 18 of their 33 second-half points at the line.

Before he took the floor for Saturday's 61-55 win over South Dakota School of Mines and Technology at W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse, Valley City State University guard Sekani Milligen knew he had a chance at two milestones: the 1,000-point mark in his career, and the team's 20th win.
Though the first is quite an accomplishment, especially given that all 1,000 points have been scored in the last two years, his mind was on the team aspect.

Under the leadership of Project Leader Kurt Eversman, Valley Cityâ€™s National Fish Hatchery on River Road is working to become a destination along the Sheyenne River.
Activities already going strong on the fish hatchery grounds include bird watching, a fishing pond signed for people 16 or under, but â€śanybody can come and fish,â€ť and gravel roads throughout the property.
Said Eversman, â€śquite a few people walk the perimeters of roadsâ€ťlooking for wildlife, fish, and the river.
Surrounded by friends and relatives from throughout North Dakota, Ted Hochhalter celebrated his 100th birthday Thursday at Legacy Place.

Tedâ€™s mind is sharp as a tack, but said it is hard for him to hear.
Harvey said his father spent a short time working with apples in Yakima, Wash., then returned to farm in North Dakota.

By nearly any measure, Valley City High School senior Shane Undem has had a successful wrestling career.
The last three years, he's placed in all three trips to state. His trip two years ago made even more impressive by the quick turnaround from a reconstructive surgery on his knee the November before the season started. Last year, he had his first top-four finish.
But as he approaches the end of his time on the high school circuit, he's got one thing on his mind â€” a state title.
