Good luck to the DU Women's basketball team today. They open up against Texas State in the first round of the WAC Tournament at 1 PM MT in Las Vegas.
----------University of Denver bluechip recruit Will Butcher tied a USHL record on Saturday night when he posted a +7 rating in his team’s 8-5 victory over the Indiana Ice. Butcher was on the ice for all eight of Team USA’s goals while being on the ice for just one of Indiana’s tallies.
University of Denver recruit Nick Neville was named NAHL South Division Star of the Week after he recorded five points (2 goals, 3 assists) and was a +2 in the two road wins.
Mike Chambers of the Denver Post penned an article yesterday stating that the WCHA playoffs are not very important for DU this season. He used 2004 as an example, when DU lost to Colorado College in the first round of the WCHA playoffs and then stormed home to win the National Championship in Boston.
