The UND women will play at NJIT on Thursday night, as the Great West has gone to a mirror conference schedule.

UND, however, will be without leading scoring Madi Buck. Following an MRI, Buck will be out a minimum of two weeks. She was injured in UND's win against Jamestown College on Jan. 12.

Buck averages 11.6 points and 8.4 rebounds for UND, which enters tonight's game 0-1 in the league and 9-10 overall. NJIT is 2-0 and 8-11.

Buck, a 6-foot sophomore, has given UND a good presence inside this season.

Her absence has forced UND coach Gene Roebuck to go with a small starting lineup.

Outside of 6-4 center Alyssa Wall, no one taller than 5-8 likely will be in tonight's lineup.
