The U Mary women's basketball team has jumped out to a 4-1 start.
The Marauders open conference play tomorrow night, when they host Minot State at the Civic Center.
For U Mary, rebuilding the rivalry from the DAC 10 days is important.
With NSIC play comes the constant pressure to perform, because every game can mean the difference between a post season and losing one.
U Mary and Minot State play a men's and women's double header starting at 5 with the women.
The men are scheduled to begin at 7.
The Marauder men are 1 and 3, again the game is at the Civic Center in Bismarck, not out on campus.
