Minnesota Public Radio looks at what’s behind the decision to drop three sports, including women’s hockey, at the University of North Dakota.

“A decision has been reached that allows us to address the requested reductions in budget, conference sports sponsorship requirements, Title IX compliance and a desire to raise our level of competitiveness across the board,” athletics director Brian Faison said in a statement.

“UND will honor all athletics scholarships for these discontinued sports at their present equivalencies for returning student-athletes,” he said, adding the school will assist student-athletes who want to transfer.
