Senior Scott Parse was named the Classic's Most Valuable Player for an assist on Friday night and both goals Saturday night, including a clutch game-tying short-handed goal.
For the purposes of the tournament championship, both games ended with shootouts. UNO defeated Colorado College 4-2 Friday night, but UAA beat the Mavs 3-1 on Saturday night. But in the standings, UNO started the season 0-0-2 against WCHA competition. Next up is UNO's Maverick Stampede tournament on Friday and Saturday night at the Qwest Center.
