On this day in UNO history, the Maverick hockey team – the first Division I sports team in the school's history – took to the ice against the University of Manitoba in front of a sold-out crowd at the Civic Auditorium, a game the Mavs narrowly lost by a score of 3-2. Since that game, the Mavs have won over 235 games, made the NCAA tournament twice and are scheduled to join the newly-formed National Collegiate Hockey Conference in 2013.

The book is dedicated to the mentors, heroines and the SNCC women who didn't live to see the book published.
