College Hockey:
Nebraska-Omaha Considering CCHA Affiliation

— The Omaha (Neb.) World-Herald reported recently that the University of Nebraska at Omaha, whose hockey team just completed its first season in Division I, is discussing possible affiliation with the CCHA.

On Mar. 20, Nebraska-Omaha representatives met with CCHA officials to examine such an arrangement, at which time the school was invited to make a full presentation at the CCHA’s spring meeting in Florida.

Nebraska-Omaha has also been considering the WCHA for possible league affiliation, but with Mankato State currently holding an inside track on WCHA membership, it appears unlikely that UNO could join that conference any earlier than 2000.
