The Mammoth move up into the top four of our rankings thanks to a comfortable 14-9 win over the New England Black Wolves this week. The Mammoth controlled the game from the outset, with Colorado scoring through Zach Herreweyers just three minutes into the contest. However, the Mammoth did the majority of their damage during a short, blistering sequence to open the second quarter, scoring three times in just over two minutes. The win puts Colorado above .500 at 5-4 and into second spot in the West Division.

The Rams played arguably their most exciting game of the season on Saturday when they topped San Diego State 56-55 in Fort Collins. Senior forward Emmanuel Omogbo hit a three pointer with just four seconds remaining to give the Rams the victory — their sixth in a row. The Rams were down 12 points at half time before mounting a comeback fueled by Omogbo and Gian Clavell, who contributed 18 points and 10 boards in the win. The Rams also picked up a 68-56 win at New Mexico earlier in the week to sit atop the Mountain West conference standings at 12-4 with two games to play before the tournament.

After picking up another two wins this week, the Rams have now won 13 out of their last 14 contests and look incredible. They dominated San Diego State in a 80-46 victory on the road after grinding out a 58-55 win over New Mexico earlier in the week. The win over San Diego State clinched the Mountain West regular season championship for the Rams — the teams forth in a row. They will go into the Mountain West tournament as the number one seed and look good to make it to the NCAA tournament in March.

The Pioneers regained their place as the number one ranked team in the nation this week, and as such, take out the top spot in our rankings. They took care of St. Cloud State at home, however, it wasn’t all smooth sailing with the nationally ranked Huskies forcing overtime in the first meeting between the two teams this week. Pioneers star Henrik Borgstrom scored the winning goal in overtime off of a great assist from Troy Terry to make it eight wins in a row for DU. The team followed up that performance with a crushing, 7-2 victory over St. Cloud State the next night. The Pioneers now go on the road to face Nebraska-Omaha before the NCHC playoffs kick off in early March.
