(WDAY TV) -- For the 2nd straight year, the Sioux women's hockey team will host Bemidji State in the opening round of the WCHA playoffs.

And that's just fine for Brian Idalski's ladies. But, one thing they don't want to see carry over from last season, is being left out of the NCAA tournament.

The Sioux are 6th in the pairwise rankings, and 8 teams make the field. Which adds a little more pressure to next weekend.

Brian Idalski says, "You're only comfortable if you are one or two. After that, the way things have been fluctuating and go from weekend to weekend and who the top twelve are under consideration. We are focused on the playoffs and getting ready for the conference tournament. That's the only guarantee is winning your conference tournament. So, we're going to focus on that and see what happens."

Hear more from Idalski and the rest of the sioux coaches, next on UND sports extra.
