DU Faces Old Foe North Dakota This Weekend

Even though DU was idle this weekend, the Pioneers' WCHA fortunes could not have been much more favorable as a result of the other league games.

CC wasted an opportunity to overtake the third-place Pioneers in the WCHA standings and is tied for fourth with North Dakota, which will bring an 11- game unbeaten streak to DU's Magness Arena on Friday to begin a series that will have enormous postseason ramifications.

The Pioneers are just ahead of the Fighting Sioux in 11th place in the PairWise rankings. CC, which plays at Minnesota State this week, slipped further down the NCAA tournament bubble and are in 12th in the PairWise.

"We needed a win," Owens said. "We would have been in third place all alone."

ETC.: DU senior J.D. Corbin hopes to return against North Dakota after missing the past four months because of an ankle injury.
