The Sioux, who had a win and a tie against Western Collegiate Hockey Association leader Denver this past weekend in Grand Forks, climbed three more sports in this week's NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Poll.

UND is now ranked 12th after being out of the poll just three weeks ago.

The Sioux (15-10-3) are currently one point behind Denver in the WCHA standings with 23 points. UND is at St. Cloud State for a two-game series starting Friday in St. Cloud, Minn.

Minnesota, who had this past weekend off, is the top-ranked WCHA team at No. 5, with Denver slipping three spots to No. 7.

Other WCHA teams in the poll are Wisconsin at No. 15, Minnesota Duluth at No. 16 and Colorado College at No. 17. St. Cloud State and Minnesota State Mankato also received votes.
