Sioux jerseys mean no photo for UND hockey team


GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The University of North Dakota's women's hockey team won't have a standard memento from their first appearance in the NCAA hockey tournament.

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.
