UND is back in the NCAA tournament and headed to a familiar place — Ridder Arena to take on undefeated Minnesota.
UND will be the No. 8 seed and take on No. 1 Minnesota in a quarterfinal game at 4 p.m. Saturday. The winner will advance to the Frozen Four, which also will be held at Ridder Arena the following week.
Minnesota has a 5-0 record against UND, including Saturday’s 2-0 win over North Dakota in the WCHA championship game.
Last year, UND made the NCAA tournament, but lost to the Gophers in Ridder Arena in the quarterfinals.
