(WDAY TV) -- Selection Sunday for the men's basketball tournament is still a week away, but today was filled with nerves for the UND women's hockey team, waiting to see if they built up a good enough resume to make the NCAA tournament for a 2nd straight year.

The wait was worth it as UND received the 8th and final bid into the tournament and will head back to Minneapolis.

UND lost 2-0 to the 38-0 Gophers last night in the Final Faceoff, but get another shot to prove it's mettle next Saturday.

Brian Idalski, UND Head Coach, says, "We're just excited we have another game

doesn't matter who, lot of people underneath us that would give their

arm to be in our situation obviously an opponent we're very familiar with something a month away we were landing hoping to catch 7th, you want to be the best you have to beat the best; Minnesota the best, might as well take them right away."
