GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- On Tuesday afternoon, University of North Dakota Provost Paul LeBel received a letter from the NCAA reiterating its sanctions prohibiting UND from hosting NCAA postseason competition due to the ongoing Fighting Sioux nickname and logo issue.

The first program to be potentially impacted by the sanctions is UND's fifth-ranked women's hockey team. UND still has a chance to secure a high enough seed to host the first round of the NCAA tournament. However, the NCAA sanctions will prohibit the team from doing so.

UND head coach Brian Idalski and athletics director Brian Faison discussed the impact of the sanctions today at a press conference.
