Two weeks after UNO ended North Dakota State's 16-game winning streak, the Mavs have yet to find their own winning ways and have lost eight of their last nine. In the middle of a stretch that includes 15 games on the road, the Mavs lost games last week 8-4 and 1-0 to Minnesota, then 4-1, 4-3 and 5-4 in 11 innings to future Summit League opponent Oakland.
Last weekend at No. 1 Emporia State, the UNO baseball team was able to earn a series split, handing the Hornets their second and third losses of the season. The losses dropped Emporia out of the top spot in the MIAA standings and set up another big weekend series against a Central Missouri team ranked just ahead of the Mavs.
