FARGO—The fact Boston University junior defenseman Brandon Hickey was standing, after Friday's 4-3 double overtime win over the University of North Dakota in the West Regional men's hockey semifinals was shocking.

"That atmosphere was insane. That team was a great team. It was just great to get that win."

"You just have to know your position and know what you have to do for your team. It's different for me every game. It just depends on the night."
