Mavs embrace challenge of facing top-ranked North Dakota. They've had it 'circled on the calendar'

North Dakota is the overwhelming No. 1 team the past few weeks in both national polls. “It’s always exciting to play the top team in the country," UNO coach Mike Gabinet said. “We know that we’ll have to manage the puck properly and make sure they earn any opportunities that they’re getting."

Mike covers high school sports, primarily volleyball in the fall, girls basketball in the winter and baseball in the spring and summer. He also reports on horse racing for The World-Herald. Follow him on Twitter @MPattersonOWH. Phone: 402-444-1350.
