Sioux jerseys mean no photo for UND hockey team

The team's photo was left out of the tournament program. That's because when the team picture was taken, the women hockey players were wearing Fighting Sioux jerseys.
The NCAA considers the Fighting Sioux nickname and the university's American Indian head logo to be offensive.
