Game Notes
The Huskies play in the seven team Great West Conference that does not get an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. 
The teams range from NJ Tech to Utah Valley; North and South Dakota to UT-Pan American and Houston Baptist.  The Great West's
combined out of conference record is 12-72. 

The Dukes and Huskies share something in common.  Both experienced the Great Alaskan Shutout by losing all three games in the
Great Alaska Shootout.   Huskies accomplished that this year, the Dukes in the late 80s. 

Only remaining question....why are we traveling to Houston for this game?
